Largest onshore wind farm in the Netherlands commences construction

The 322MW Windpark Zeewolde wind farm in the Netherlands has commenced construction. Mott MacDonald is the lender’s technical advisor on the project, which will be the largest onshore wind farm in the Netherlands and the largest community-owned wind farm in Europe.

Located near the city of Almere, the Windpark Zeewolde project involves the construction of 83 new Vestas turbines to replace more than 200 existing wind turbines in the same area. The project will generate almost three times more energy with half the number of turbines.

Mott MacDonald provided lender’s technical advisory services for the construction of the 83 planned turbines as well as reviewing the design, energy yield assessment, project management, environmental and financial plans. The consultancy will now monitor construction and operation in an ongoing role.

Rick Janssen, Mott MacDonald’s project manager said: “We are delighted that our work has helped Windpark Zeewolde to reach financial close and commence construction. As a Dutch national, I’m pleased that we are playing a role in the energy transition in the Netherlands and that we continue to deliver renewable energy to the country, following our involvement in other onshore and offshore wind farms.”

Windpark Zeewolde wind farm is expected to be complete in 2022.
