The deal is signed with Mitsubishi's subsidiary in the Netherlands, Diamond Generating Europe. Before the deal can reach full close, domestic public authorities, among others, will have to give their stamp of approval.

Half of Luchterduinen of 129MW, online since 2015, will be be owned by Inpex' UK subsidiary.
According to Inpex Renewable, the company is working to expand its operations within renewable energy projects – especially by using its experience from oil and gas extraction to manifest offshore wind and geothermal projects.
