RWE Innogy gets approval for 90 MW onshore wind park in Netherlands
Jun 21, 2013 - The Dutch Council of State in Den Haag has cleared the way for the construction of a 90 MW onshore wind power park in the western Netherlands by RWE Innogy, the green arm of German utility RWE AG (ETR:RWE).
RWE Innogy said on Thursday the council decided that the objections against the Zuidwester wind park are inadmissible or unfounded.
RWE could start construction works in 2014. The wind park at the IJsselmeer lake will consist of twelve 7.5 MW wind turbines with a total capacity of 90 MW.
The Zuidwester wind farm is part of the Dutch wind power Noordoostpolder project under which 86 turbines with a total capacity of 429 MW will be installed in the IJsselmeer and onshore along the lake.
The electricity generated by the Noordoostpolder wind farm will be enough to meet the needs of 400,000 households.
