Decommissioned: 2023
Location: The wind farm was located on the Eemmeerdijk dyke, near Zeewolde, in the province of Flevoland
Commissioned: 1998
Owner: Vattenfall
Production capacity: 19 MW (based on original number of turbines)
Turbines: 19 two-bladed NedWind 55, 60-metre tall tower and a 55-metre rotor diameter, of which 17 were still standing at the start of 2023
Turbine power: 1 MW
Decommissioned by: FairWind as the main contractor, with Mammoet for the lifting work, and Danish Kingo for the removal of civil work items such as foundation, roads and cables.

Not only is this wind farm unique, for being the only wind farm left in the Netherlands with NedWind 55 turbines, it is also unique for its multi-coloured towers. The tower of each of units by Dutch design was painted in a different colour, representing the colours of the surrounding countryside or, some would say, of the rainbow.

In January 2023, one turbine collapsed due to a vibrated pitch cylinder, this resulted in the dismantling being brought forward.
