Fryslân Wind Farm
Fryslân Wind Farm will comprise 89 wind turbines in the Frisian part of the IJsselmeer, near Breezanddijk. At a size of about 320 MW, Fryslân Wind Farm is one of the largest wind projects in the Netherlands. It is expected that the wind farm will supply 340,000 households with sustainable energy every year by 2020.
The owners have offered the province a large scale participation in the project. Participation by the province is a direct way to let the province and its residents benefit from the wind farm. Direct financial participation by residents of Fryslân is another serious option.
An agreement has been reached by the municipality of Súdwest Fryslân and Fryslân Wind Farm on the establishment of an environmental fund. Fryslân Wind Farm will deposit annually approx. € 500,000 in this fund for the development of the area around the wind farm along the IJsselmeer coast.
Fryslân Wind Farm has outsourced the overall project management of the wind farm to Ventolines.
