Dutch Council of State approves Noordoostpolder wind farm project
Jun 21, 2013 - The Dutch Council of State approved on Wednesday the construction of the wind farm in Noordoostpolder.
The approval was the final necessary step for start of work on the new farm.
With some 86 wind turbines, the annual generation capacity of the Noordoostpolder facility is seen at some 1.4 billion kWh. That will be sufficient to cover the annual consumption of 400,000 households.
The Noordoostpolder farm is expected to start operation in 2016.
