At the end of November 2021, financial close was achieved with ASN Bank for the financing of the Bovenwind wind farm. The construction of the wind farm in the municipality of Staphorst, Overijssel province, is expected to start in the course of this year.
This was reported by Dutch consultancy Pondera, who were involved in the development and implementation of Bovenwind wind farm from the start.
Wind farm Bovenwind is an initiative of cooperative Wij Duurzaam Staphorst. The cooperative is working on this project with the waterboard Drents Overijsselse Delta. Having achieved the financial close, the cooperative will now move onto the next phase, the construction.
Enercon and Van den Heuvel
The wind farm will have three wind turbines. In July 2021, the initiators concluded a contract with the German turbine supplier Enercon for the supply of three wind turbines with a rotor diameter of 138 metres, a hub height of 131 metres and a tip height of 198 metres. In addition, a contract has been signed with the Dutch contractor Van den Heuvel. Construction of the wind turbines should start during 2022. The wind farm was awarded SDE+ subsidy in 2020.
During the construction phase, cooperative Wij Duurzaam Staphorst will organise a crowdfunding campaign to offer residents of Staphorst the opportunity to invest in the wind farm. Source: Pondera
