Eneco has won a tender from the Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) to build the over 100MW Maasvlakte 2 wind farm on a sea wall in the Netherlands.
The new wind farm will generate around 416 gigawatt-hours of electricity a year.
Eneco said it expects to start construction in 2022, so that the project can supply sustainable energy for 25 years by 2023 at the latest.
All the electricity generated by the wind farm will go to the Rijkswaterstaat, it added.
Eneco director of wind and solar Cees de Haan said: “The Second Maasvlakte is a great location to be allowed to develop a new wind farm. I am therefore very proud that we as Eneco can build our largest onshore wind farm at this location. Together with this project we are going to take a very nice step to make the energy supply of Rijkswaterstaat even more sustainable.”
