An iconic artificial island in the North Sea
Designed to support the energy transition
Unlocking the potential of the North Sea

Innovation, sustainability and knowledge sharing

Offshore Service Facilities (OSF) started a private initiative developing an iconic artificial island in the North Sea, in the wind farm area IJmuiden Ver (IJVER). The island will provide a location for electrical infrastructure required to export electricity generated by the IJVER wind farms to shore, and provide a location for a range of other renewable energy activities, thereby facilitating the energy transition and demonstrating technological excellence

Background: IJVER

At least 4 GW at ~80 km from the shore of IJmuiden

A multi-purpose island provides additional benefits over a jacket-based solution as a location for electrical infrastructure. It stimulates the energy transition, further drives down costs and creates room for nature inclusive island design & additional economic opportunities


Co-developing an island for the future

Developing a cutting-edge and innovative island involves a wide range of stakeholders, from governments to NGOs. OSF recognizes their roles and is working closely with all actors involved
