Westermeerwind Wind Farm
Westermeerwind has been constructed in the water of the IJsselmeer along the dykes of the Noordoostpolder. It is the largest near-shore wind farm in our country and consists of 48 wind turbines of 3 MW – divided over two rows along the Westermeerdijk and one along the Noordermeerdijk – and a transformer station on land. The wind farm generates wind energy for i.e. 160,000 households.
Westermeerwind is part of Noordoostpolder Wind Farm with 86 wind turbines in the water and on land, along the dykes of the IJsselmeer.

Westermeerwind B.V. has outsourced the construction supervision and the operations of Westermeerwind Wind Farm to Ventolines. In addition, Ventolines provides the asset management of the wind farm for the next 15 years.
Siemens is the main contractor that has constructed Westermeerwind Wind Farm, and will maintain the wind farm for a minimum period of fifteen years. Various Dutch companies were involved as sub-contractors in the project, including Van Oord and Mammoet for the foundation and the installation of the wind turbines, and VBMS (VolkerWessels Boskalis Marine Solutions) for the cabling to the transformer station. The power will be supplied to Eneco.
