Lagerwey has received an order from Growind to build two L136 4.5MW wind turbines in the Eemshaven, situated in the northern part of the Netherlands. The turbines are capable of withstanding average wind speeds of up to 8.5 m/s. The turbines will replace two old wind turbines in the port of Eemshaven, which have already been dismantled.
In January the new foundations for the L136s will be constructed in the same locations. Construction work on the first new turbine will begin in March 2017. This turbine will be completed by the end of April. The second turbine will be constructed at the end of 2017 using the Lagerwey Climbing Crane. It will be the first time the Climbing Crane will be called into action following the presentation of this concept in June 2016. The turbines have a hub height of 132 metres and a rotor diameter of 136 metres, resulting in a tip height of just over 200 metres.
