Maarten Timmerman is Founder of BLIX and Director of BLIX Asia. He has been involved in offshore wind farm development since early 2000 and has built an in-depth insight of the commercial, contractual, and technical aspects of large offshore wind projects in varying conditions.
Maarten played a key role in shaping the offshore wind concessions tender process in The Netherlands through his advisory role to The Netherlands Government (NEA and Ministry of Economics and Climate). In the last years he has had a variety of roles in development, contracting and construction of offshore wind projects in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Taiwan. Maarten has strategic insight and an eye for project management processes such as planning, quality, and information management.
In the spring of 2020, he started the BLIX Asia office in Taipei, Taiwan. Since then, he lives in Taipei and works there on offshore wind farm development in Asia.
“I am convinced that in the future we will do things differently and renewable energy supply will have a key role. It feels good to be able to contribute from BLIX to this transition process towards a more sustainable environment. The projects that are part of this are challenging from multiple perspectives and I feel excited to take these challenges together with my colleagues.”
