*The objective of the RfP process for the soils package is to execute exploratory geophysical and geotechnical surveys and have the results available in time to allow them to be used for foundation design and bid preparation.

Preparing an LCoE comparison tool for the offshore wind energy

For an undisclosed client, BLIX prepared an LCoE comparison tool for the offshore wind energy business cases with different foundation types (monopiles, jackets and floating foundations).

Client asked this tool to use it for understanding the commercial break even points for changing the foundation type for the current and future projects that they will work on. Together with the model, BLIX also shared an insight to the future of floating wind market.

Export markets assessment for the Dutch offshore wind industry

We conducted a market study on offshore wind energy in the Baltics: ‘Export markets assessment for the Dutch offshore wind industry: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania’.

For each of the three Baltic States countries, BLIX assessed the policy and regulatory environment, the offshore grid infrastructure plan, maritime spatial plan, the offshore wind value and supply chain, and current development activities. The purpose of the study is to inform Dutch companies who are active in the offshore wind energy business and who seek opportunities in the Baltic States.
