Company description

Our client is Europe’s first cross-border grid operator for electricity. With approximately 21,000 kilometers of (extra) high-voltage lines and 41 million end-users in the Netherlands and Germany, they rank among the top five grid operators in Europe. Their focus is to develop a North-West European energy market, to integrate renewable energy, and to optimize our safety performance. Safety is a core value. We set high standards, for our employees as well as our contractors.

In September 2013, over 40 parties in The Netherlands agreed on the Energieakkoord, setting targets and intentions for the transition to a more renewable energy supply. This agreement also sets targets for offshore wind development. In June 2014 the Dutch government confirmed the decision for an offshore grid, as well as the intention to appoint our client as the offshore grid operator.

The decision to realise 3500 MW of offshore wind energy has been taken in the law 'Wind op Zee" and the appointment of our client is expected in Q2 2016. The technical concept (eg. standard platforms) has been developed and the preparation for the first individual projects (spatial, permits, procurement) is ongoing. The first grid connection system will be operational in August 2019.

In order to initiate, prepare and realize the connections of the offshore wind farms in the Dutch part of the North Sea, the new department Offshore NL is formed. A great opportunity for people who are willing and able to work and build in a dynamic and innovative environment.
