About us

Section Separator

BLIX Consultancy was founded in Utrecht, the Netherlands, in 2009 by Albert van der Hem (Left) and Maarten Timmerman (right), who already had decades of experience in the onshore and offshore wind industry. In the 12 years that passed, BLIX has established a strong portfolio containing close to 300 projects, has opened offices in Taiwan and South-Korea and has helped with the realisation of over 20GW of offshore green energy.

Our specialised and independent team consists of 20 in house experts in the field of offshore and onshore wind and solar projects. Contract managers, civil and electrical engineers, stakeholder managers and strategy and financial experts: our team has the knowledge to do the initial research, bring projects to financial close or assist during the construction phase.

Sustainability

We are extremely proud to say that we are 100% climate neutral. To realise this, BLIX has moved its headquarters in 2017 to the UCo-building: an almost 100% climate neutral building in the heart of Utrecht, and implemented internal sustainability policies, such as promoting public transport and by working almost completely digital. CO2 emissions from our travels (both domestic and international) are being compensated with the help of social enterprise FairClimateFund. In 2020, BLIX compensated 200% of all its CO2 emissions.

Quality

Quality has always been important at BLIX. Not only do we want to deliver the highest quality for our clients and partners, we also care about the implementation of quality in our everyday work. We are therefore proud to have been ISO 9001 certified since 2017.
