Windpark Zeewolde, Vestas and Rabobank have closed contracts for wind turbines and financing for the Windpark Zeewolde project in the Netherlands. Windpark Zeewolde B.V., a collaboration of more than 200 local farmers, residents and entrepreneurs of the Netherlands, has placed an order for 83 Vestas wind turbines totalling 322MW for the wind project Zeewolde.
The project is in the outskirts of Zeewolde, close to the IJsselmeer, on an area that covers over 300 square kilometers. The wind park currently consists of more than 200 turbines which will be replaced by new Vestas turbines. The financing of the windfarm will be arranged by Rabobank that will provide both the junior debt and a senior debt loan (approximately € 500 million) for the construction of the project. Vestas will supply a mix of turbine variants from the 2 MW and 4 MW platforms and a 20-year service contract. The delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021. The entire park will be completed in 2022.
