The Nordex Group has secured an order for a total of 33 MW for a wind farm in the Netherlands. The Nordex Group will supply nine N117/3600 turbines for the “Den Tol” wind farm. The turbines will be supplied in the 3.675 MW operating mode. The order also includes a Premium Service contract for the turbines covering 25 years.
“Den Tol” will be built in the east of the Netherlands, near Netterden, close to the Dutch-German border. The wind farm has been developed over many years by a group of local farmers together with Windunie Development, a Dutch specialist in the development and operation of local sustainable energy projects.
Installation of the turbines is scheduled from October 2021, and the wind farm is due to be completed in spring 2022. The turbines will be supplied with 120-meter tubular steel towers and installed on special foundations so that the final hub height will amount to 125 meters. At this height, the typical wind speeds for a European inland site stand at 6.8 m/s. The customer Den Tol Exploitatie B.V. expects an annual yield of 9.8 million kilowatt-hours per turbine. With an average consumption of approx. 15 KWh/100 km, this would correspond to the electricity requirement of 6,500 electric cars for each 10,000 km of driven distance.
