AMSTERDAM: A consortium led by Royal Dutch Shell has won a zero-subsidy tender to build a 750-megawatt (MW) wind farm in the North Sea off the coast of the Netherlands, the country’s economic affairs ministry said. The consortium, which also includes Mitsubishi-owned energy company ENECO, will build the Hollandse Kust – Noord project, the ministry said in a statement. The auction was the latest in a series as the Netherlands seeks to reach 3,500 MW of offshore wind power by 2023.
