E-Connection, a Dutch wind project developer, has placed an order for 11 turbines totaling 46 MW for the first phase of the wind project Oosterscheldekering Wind Optimization that consists of the four wind parks Binnenhaven, Roggeplaat-West, Noordland Buiten and Vluchthaven.
Located directly on the waterfront on a storm surge barrier in the Zeeland province in the southwest of the Netherlands, Vestas has developed a wind energy solution customised to the sites’ high wind conditions with average windspeeds of more than 9 m/s at hub height. The project is a mix of new turbines and turbines that replace older turbine types and in total it features nine V136-4.2 MW turbines and two V117-4.2 MW turbines with site-specific towers, combined with a 15-year service contract.
At Noordland Buiten and Vluchthaven wind parks the current five V90-3.0 MW turbines will be replaced by five V136-4.2 MW turbines. The Binnenhaven and Roggeplaat-West wind parks will feature four V136-4.2 MW turbines and two V117-4.2 MW turbines respectively. Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021 and commissioning is planned for the same quarter.
