Vattenfall is building a new hybrid energy park, consisting of solar panels, wind turbines and batteries at Haringvliet in the Netherlands. The total capacity is 60MW and the total investment is € 35 million.
The first stage of the building work on the energy park involves installing a total of six wind turbines in the north of Goeree-Overflakkee island between Middelharnis and Stad aan 't Haringvliet. The power output of the wind farm is expected to be in the region of 22MW. Once the wind turbines have been installed, the solar farm can then be built, consisting of 124,000 solar panels with a total of 38MW. The batteries – supplied by BMW and with a capacity of 12MWh – will be installed in 12 shipping containers on the solar farm. The energy park is expected to be fully operational in September 2020.
