Last week the first pile was driven for Wind Farm Strekdammen, located at the breakwaters in Eemshaven, Groningen. The work is being carried out by foundation specialist Gebr. Van ‘t Hek.
The Strekdammen wind farm will feature two 5.5 MW Cypress wind turbines from GE Renewable Energy. The wind farm is a project of Pondera and Rebel. The parties reached financial close for the wind farm at the end of 2020.
The civil works and electrical infrastructure is being carried out by contractors VolkerWind and Alsema. Earlier this year, the temporary facilities such as a sheet pile wall, access roads and crane hardstands were built.
In 2022, GE will start with the installation of the two turbines. The wind turbines are expected to become operational in mid-2022. Source: VolkerWind
