About this project
Windkoepel Groen (WKG) is the initiator of Windplan Groen in Oostelijk Flevoland, a collaboration between local residents and entrepreneurs. More than 400 farmers and residents from the project area (more than 80 percent of the total number of residents in the area) own the plan. Windplan Groen is one of the four planned wind energy projects in the Southern and Eastern Flevopolder.
In order to achieve the national climate targets, sustainable energy projects are necessary. By 2020, 14% of the energy must be sustainable. In 2023, that should be 16%. With 90 wind turbines and an estimated capacity of 500 Megawatts, Windplan Groen is a substantial contribution to the national target. The wind farm will produce approximately 1.9 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) per year. That is the same amount of electricity as is used annually in the entire province of Flevoland. The wind farm is the largest onshore wind farm in the Netherlands in terms of production and installed capacity.
The project is subject to the state coordination scheme for which the necessary permits and exemptions had to be coordinated. Within this framework, the National Incorporation Plan was prepared, which is intended to replace the municipal zoning plan, in order to make the project as spatial as possible. The National Incorporation Plan for Windplan Groen became irrevocable in September 2020. The tendering process for the turbines and all necessary electrical works started in the spring of 2020.
Ventolines has played a leading role in the development process of Windplan Groen. Ventolines is also responsible for the contract management.
