Shell was one of the original partners in the Blauwwind Consortium that was awarded the right to develop, construct and operate the Borssele III and IV offshore wind farms under a 30-year lease in Dec 2016 alongside partners Diamond Generating Europe, Eneco and Van Oord. In 2018 Partners Group joined the consortium and financial close was announced. The consortium partners are Partners Group (45%), Shell (20%), DGE (15%), Eneco Group (10%) and Van Oord (10%). The wind farm is expected to produce roughly 3.000 Gigawatt hours (Gwh) per annum, which is equivalent to the annual power use of 825,000 Dutch households. Shell Energy Europe Limited and Eneco have secured contracts to each sell 50% of the power produced.
