To mitigate the effects of climate change, the Netherlands is actively developing an energy system designed to achieve zero CO2 emissions by 2050. This innovative system relies heavily on renewable sources such as solar and wind energy, a good share of which needs to be harnessed offshore. TNO is playing a pivotal role in expediting the adoption of offshore renewable energy by providing guidance, conducting research, and contributing to the development efforts for both public authorities and the energy sector, in the Netherlands and abroad.

Empowering the offshore wind industry

TNO is dedicated to enhancing offshore Installation, Operations & Maintenance (O&M), and Decommissioning capabilities by enabling offshore wind farm developers, owners, and asset managers to make informed decisions of the highest quality. Through aligning people, processes, and tools toward common objectives, substantial increases in operating profits (potentially in the millions of euros) can be realized while minimizing the impact on the environment.

In collaboration with industry leaders globally, spanning Europe, the U.S.A, and Asia, TNO is actively involved in shaping purpose-driven asset management processes. Our commitment to enabling data-driven decision-making is realized through the development, delivery, training, and integration of our cutting-edge simulation software.

Proud to be part of TNO

As the former Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), we have been in active in wind power since the 1970s and we have more than 20 years of experience developing decision-support tools for offshore wind installation and O&M. Models and learnings from our past experience developing industry-standard tools (like ECN O&M Tool, ECN Access, and ECN O&M Cost Estimator) have converged into our latest software platform: UWiSE

We take pride in contributing to the energy transition. Being part of TNO empowers us with a reservoir of knowledge, cutting-edge resources, and a collaborative spirit that fuels our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what's possible.
