The ministries of Economic Affairs and Climate (EZK), Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK) of the Netherlands, and the Ministry of Economic Development (MEO) of Curaçao signed an agreement to advance the production of offshore floating wind energy and establish a hydrogen production chain in Curaçao.

Curaçao will collaborate on an equal basis with the Dutch government, businesses, and knowledge institutions to facilitate the production of offshore wind energy using floating wind turbines. The objective is to develop a scalable hydrogen value chain.

In the coming period, the technical, logistical, and operational business case will be coordinated with organisations specialising in floating offshore wind and the production of sustainable fuels. This will include developing a small-scale chain with the aim of creating a scalable hydrogen value chain that can fully utilise Curaçao's wind energy potential (up to 10 GW).

In the Netherlands, this input will be coordinated by three industry organisations: IRO, the association for Dutch suppliers in the offshore energy industry; NedZero, the industry organisation for wind energy; and NLHydrogen, the industry association for the hydrogen sector.
