Westermeerwind Wind Farm
Westermeerwind Wind Farm is being developed in the waters of the IJsselmeer along the dikes of the Noordoostpolder in one of the windiest locations in the Netherlands. The wind park will comprise 48 wind turbines each with a capacity of 3MW arranged in two rows along the Westermeer dike and one row along the Noordermeer dike plus an onshore transformer substation. The Westermeerwind Wind Farm is the near shore section of the Noordoostpolder Wind Farm, the largest wind farm in the Netherlands.
