Vattenfall has decided to invest more than € 200 million to repower and expand its Wieringermeer onshore windfarm in the Netherlands. Vattenfall will replace older wind turbines with new wind turbines with a total capacity of 180MW by 2019.
Moreover, Vattenfall has acquired the adjacent Wieringermeer extension with an additional capacity of 115MW. Wieringermeerwill in 2020 reach a total capacity of 295MW and a power generation of around 1 TWh (terawatt hours). Wieringermeer will be built and operated by Vattenfall's Dutch subsidiary Nuon.
