Princess Amalia wind farm

Generating around 435GWhs of electricity yearly the Princess Amalia Wind farm – the world's first project financed offshore wind farm – helps reduce dependency on fossil fuels imports, avoiding 225,000 tons of CO2 emissions.

Princess Amalia wind farm, Netherlands Located 23km from shore where the water is 19-24m deep, the Princess Amalia wind farm is the first offshore wind farm to be constructed in such deep waters and at such a distance from the shore (beyond the 12-mile limit).

Princess Amalia wind farm is located in block Q7 of the Dutch Continental Shelf – 23km from the shore where the water can be as deep as 24m. Princess Amalia Wind Farm is the first offshore wind farm to be constructed in such deep waters and so far from shore. The depth and distance were chosen to minimise impact on migrating birds and to keep the farm invisible from the Dutch coast.

Our role started as lender's engineer for Rabobank, Dexia and EKF. Following successful financing, we were re-appointed to monitor construction.

The wind park has an overall capacity of 120MW, comprising 60 Vestas V80 2MW wind turbines. The rotor weighs 37 tons and has a diameter of 80m. This project posed major technical challenges being the furthest offshore and in the deepest water. Together with our colleagues from James Ingram & Associates, we providing leading edge solutions which demonstrated our unique combination of marine, wind and project finance expertise.

Princess Amalia Wind farm generates enough power to supply 125,000 Dutch homes in one year. It has set precedence for future development of offshore wind farms and for contributing to sustainability.
