The first wind turbine parts have arrived at the construction site of the onshore wind farm Den Tol. Now a start can be made with the construction of the first of nine wind turbines.
Windpark Den Tol is being built in the rural area of Netterden in the municipality of Oude IJsselstreek, near the German border at Emmerich. Nine Nordex N117 wind turbines, each with a tip height of 189 m and a capacity of 3.6 MW, will be installed here. The total installed capacity of the wind farm will be almost 33 MW.
Windpark Den Tol is an initiative of a number of farming families. The wind farm was developed with the support of Windunie Development. In January this year, financial close was reached after which the construction work could start.
In March this year Van Hattum en Blankevoort started the foundation work on behalf of VolkerWind. The first pile was driven in mid-April. Meiland Azewijn is involved in this project with the construction of the park roads and crane hardstands, while Watt Infra is providing the park cabling. Green Trust Consultancy is responsible for the construction management.
The wind farm is scheduled to deliver its first electricity in the spring of 2022. The 9 turbines together will produce over 80,000 MWh of electricity annually. This is the equivalent of the energy consumption of over 25,000 households. Photo: Tonny Bosman, source: Green Trust
