With the tender for the Hollandse Kust Zuid III & IV offshore wind sites in Q1 2019 rapidly approaching, potential contesters and other interested parties are awaiting the publication of the definitive version of the Ministerial Regulation holding the rules and weightings related to the tender procedure and criteria for HKZ III&IV.

On 20 September 2018 a draft Regulation was published on the RVO-website (Dutch only) but at yesterday’s explanatory meeting, RVO stated that no changes are to be expected to the draft version and that publication will follow shortly, including an English translation. The exact tender dates have not yet been fixed.
