AYOP members speak at Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife (CWW) 2022

During the 6th Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife (CWW 2022) to be organized in Egmond aan Zee from April 4-8, AYOP will sponsor a lunch for participants on Wednesday April 6. Lunch will take place in the Telstar stadium during an excursion including lectures by AYOP members Port of Amsterdam (Everhard van den Brakel) and Zeehaven IJmuiden N.V. (Peter van de Meerakker).

Port of Amsterdam and IJmuiden Seaport (AYOP) will present you the developments of a brand-new energy port that will serve as a key base of operations for the construction and maintenance of the new to be constructed wind farms located off the coast of North Holland. This new port is essential given the ambitious plans of the Dutch Government to install 21 GW of wind energy at sea by 2030. The Energy Port is ideally positioned for the new wind farms on the sea-side of the North Sea Canal, just before the IJmuiden lock. The port will have a surface area of more than 15 hectares and a multifunctional port terminal. The port will include a 580-metre quay, consisting of 200 meters of heavy-duty with a depth of 12.5 meters and 380 meters of standard quay (depth: 10.0 meters). The port’s location will allow it to play a major role in the (cost-)efficient construction and maintenance of (future) wind farms. It should be ready in 2025.
