Denmark-based FairWind A/S said on Friday that it has been chosen to provide turbine erection services for the Hanze and Ansjovisstroom wind farms in the Netherlands, which will have a combined capacity of 120 MW.
The contract is for the installation of 20 units of GE 6.0-164m RD turbines from the Cypress platform. Work is scheduled to start in May and the wind farms are expected to be fully operational by the end of the year, a press release said.
The Hanze and Ansjovisstroom sites are part of the Windplan Groen repowering project in the Dutch province of Flevoland, which is expected to generate 1.9 billion kWh yearly upon completion.
The Windplan Groen project is a joint initiative of more than 400 local farmers and residents. It includes 11 wind farms, comprising 90 wind turbines and an estimated capacity of 500 MW. The development phase of all the sites was completed in December 2021.
