Eneco delighted to have won tender for Maasvlakte 2 wind farm

Eneco is delighted to have won the tender for the planned Maasvlakte 2 wind farm. Rijkswaterstaat, the executive agency of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, announced the results of this tender today. This means that Eneco will be able to realise its plan to build a wind farm with a capacity of more than 100 MW on the sea wall of Maasvlakte 2.

Cees de Haan, director Eneco Wind & Solar: “Maasvlakte 2 is an excellent location for the development of a new wind farm. I am very proud that Eneco will be able to construct its largest onshore wind farm at this site. I am also looking forward to working together with the various regional parties on making this project a big success and taking a significant step in further increasing the sustainability of the energy supply of Rijkswaterstaat.”

The new wind farm will generate around 416 GWh of green power, corresponding to the energy consumption of 138,000 households. Eneco expects to start the preparations for the construction in 2022, which would mean that the wind farm could start producing green power in 2023 at the latest, for a period of 25 years. As of 2023, Rijkswaterstaat will purchase all the green power generated by the wind farm.
