Currently, we have three connections between the Netherlands and Germany, one with Great Britain, two with Belgium, two with Austria, one with the Czech Republic, one with Sweden, two with Denmark and one with Norway. Built on an artificial island far out in the North Sea, the NSWPH would be a hub for collecting wind power from the huge number of wind farms in the area, then sending it onshore to the North Sea-bordering countries via subsea power cables. When it’s ready, the NSWPH could supply renewable energy to 80 million people across Europe by 2050. The size of this project involves partnership between many different players. TenneT, with its expertise in offshore power and cross-border energy markets, is one of the prime movers, working in a consortium that also includes Energinet, Gasunie and the Port of Rotterdam. The scale and ambition of this hub is unprecedented and clearly demonstrates the potential of the North Sea as a sustainable source of European wind power for many years into the future. “WHERE IS TENNET OPERATING CROSS-BORDER CONNECTIONS?” TENNET TOMORROW 13
