About Gemini


The Gemini offshore wind park in the Dutch North Sea is to be one of the world’s largest wind farms, both in terms of size as well as production. With a total 600 megawatt capacity, Gemini will also be one of the most productive wind farms in the world.

Gemini is being built on two locations close to each other, hence the name Gemini (=twins). The official names of the locations are Buitengaats and Zee-energie.



Gemini will make a significant contribution to achieving the renewable energy targets of the Netherlands, as well as those of Europe: it will produce renewable electricity for 1.5 million people, while reducing CO₂ emissions by 1.25 million tons per year. In this way, Gemini will play a key role in accomplishing the objectives set by the Dutch Energy Agreement (Nederlandse Energieakkoord), which aims to increase the share of sustainable (renewable) energy to 16% by 2023.



Four project partners have joined forces to make Gemini a reality:

Canadian independent renewable energy company Northland Power (60% project interest), wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Wind Power (20%), Dutch maritime contractor Van Oord (10%) and renewable energy and waste processing company HVC (10%).

Facts | figures

  • Once operational, Gemini will be one of the world’s largest offshore wind parks, both in terms of size and production.
  • Gemini is located in the Dutch North Sea, 85 kilometres north of the Dutch coast and is not visible from the shore. This location offers some of the highest and most constant wind speeds on the Dutch part of the North Sea.
