Vattenfall’s largest onshore wind farm enters operation

Vattenfall‘s biggest onshore wind project, the 122 MW Zuidlob wind farm, was officially opened yesterday, and changes its name to the Princess Alexia wind farm.

Located in the central of the Netherlands, this wind farm (pictured), with its 36 turbines, will be able to supply 88,000 households with renewable electricity annually.

The investment cost of the project was SEK1.4bn ($215m).

In a statement Vattenfall describes the construction of Princess Alexia wind farm as “rapid”.

Work on the project started at the end of 2011, with the first unit connected to the grid four months after construction began and completion in 17 months.

Vattenfall is one of the leading lights in wind power development in the Netherlands and has been active in the sector here since 1982.

The Swedish utility currently supplies around 15 per cent of the total wind energy generated in the country.
