Linked by Offshore Wind: the Baltics and the Netherlands
Dutch government and offshore wind industry make long term commitment on Baltic markets
A cluster of Dutch companies from the offshore wind sector will jointly explore the market in three Baltic countries. They are supported by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Dutch embassies in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. This is excellent news for companies from the offshore wind sector with ambitions in the Baltic States.
The public-private partnership agreement was confirmed on October 24, 2023. By participating in this collaboration, participants will gain a clear overview of the Baltic market, insight into upcoming offshore wind projects and learn more about topics such as port logistics and onshore and offshore grid.
Obtaining market information
“Obtaining market information is an important argument for many companies to join the cluster in these dynamic developing markets. Sometimes it may be necessary to actively engage with local authorities to warn them of new developments in the market or to create better conditions for companies to do business," says Elro van den Burg, coordinator of the cluster Linkedbyoffshorewind – the Baltics. Two offshore wind studies have been carried out on market conditions in the Baltic States. They can be found here.
In preparation for this cluster, the embassies of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and the Dutch Wind Energy Association (NWEA) organized trade missions to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania last April and September. In May, Baltic companies and government officials were introduced to the offshore wind sector in the Netherlands during an incoming mission.
Call for participation
There is still room for Dutch companies to register for this public-private partnership until November 24, 2023. This offers the opportunity to enter this market together with fellow companies, the support of local embassies, the Dutch government and a liaison.
