The four Enercon E66 wind turbines that were removed in the summer of 2022 from wind farm Anchovisstroom near Biddinghuizen have now arrived in Australia.
Late this week, a notice announcing the arrival surfaced on LinkedIn. The four wind turbines were taken down by the Lithuanian company Inikti last year. They were a part of the formerly operating Ansjovisstroom Wind Farm along with three further wind turbines of the same type. The old windmills have to make way for brand-new, more advanced ones (supplied by GE). The larger wind project Windplan Groen in the eastern half of the Flevoland province includes the repowering of Windpark Ansjovisstroom.
The Moora microgrid project, which is located close to Perth, Australia, gives the four wind turbines a new lease on life after they have been completely repaired and delivered there. According to the study, this microgrid uses wind energy in addition to PV, biogas, and battery storage. It also has its own HV network, which is almost 50 kilometers long. A pig farm, a citrus farm, and perhaps other farms in Moora will benefit from this. The four turbines at Moora were decommissioned and then recommissioned by the Australian company Advanced Energy Resources.
