Vattenfall, the owner of the Dutch electricity company Nuon, has signed a delivery contract for the expansion of the “Wieringermeer” wind farm with the Nordex Group.
The expansion comprises 32 N117/3600 turbines. Last year Vattenfall had ordered 50 turbines from the same series, of which construction is currently prepared. The expansion contract entails the delivery and installation of the turbines as well as service for at least two years. The installation of the 32 turbines will take place after completion of the first construction phase. The commissioning of the first 50 plants is planned for 2019. After completion of the whole project comprising 82 wind turbines the installed capacity of Wieringermeer will amount to around 300MW. In November 2017, Microsoft Corp. and Vattenfall signed a PPA for the purchase of wind power from Wieringermeer to supply the Microsoft data center Middenmeer north of Amsterdam with a term of ten years.
