Validation of the IJmuiden Ver electrical grid
BLIX Consultancy has validated the assumptions and considerations used by TenneT to arrive at an optimal landfall of the electricity from the future IJmuiden Ver wind energy area.
BLIX notes that the assumptions of the TenneT studies are valid. In the validation six different scenarios were reviewed, varying from conventional alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) platforms of different sizes to the most ambitious: an island-hub.
The island-hub network is technically and economically feasible, but does not fit within the Dutch government's roadmap. Due to the validation report the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs & Climate decided on a platform instead of an island-hub.
