Borssele 1&2, Ørsted's first wind farm in the Netherlands, has a capacity of 752MW. This makes the offshore wind farm the largest operational offshore wind farm in the Netherlands and the second largest worldwide. Offshore wind energy is a very important source of green energy for industry in Zeeland, so that business processes can be electrified. 

State Secretary Dilan Yesilgöz-Zegerius of Economic Affairs and Climate: 
“Borssele 1&2 was the first large-scale wind farm in the Netherlands. I am very pleased to see that the wind farm has been operational for a year now. Offshore wind energy now plays a crucial role in achieving our climate goals and I invite Ørsted to continue to play a role in realizing the energy transition.”

Steven Engels, General Manager Benelux of Ørsted: 
“Our winning bid in 2016 of EUR 72.7 per MWh resulted in a price breakthrough. Then we did what we promised. On time and within budget. Additional safety measures at sea and on land allowed us to continue construction during a global pandemic and complete this large-scale green energy project. With Norges Bank Investment Management, we have now also welcomed a very professional partner as co-owner of the wind farm. After reaching these major milestones, we look forward to continuing our role as a reliable partner for the Dutch energy transition.”
