Hartel2 Wind Farm

Wind farm Hartel2 consists of 8 x 3 MW Alstom wind turbines in the Botlek area of Rotterdam. The turbines produce an annual average of 58 million kilowatt hours, enough to provide energy for 16,570 households.

The construction of this wind farm has been very complicated because of the extensive infrastructural network which had to be taken into account, such as a waterway, railway, highway, bike path, gas station, underground oil pipeline, berths for ships and jetties of companies in the neighborhood etc.

Ries Velema, senior project manager at Ventolines: “The task of leading all processes in the right direction with authorities, residents, contractors, participants and within the deadline and budget, has been a challenging experience”.
