Ecofys WTTS to support development of community owned 300 MW wind project Zeewolde

September 2016 - Through a comprehensive wind measurement campaign, Ecofys WTTS will support the development of the up to 300 MW wind farm Zeewolde. This onshore wind project in the Dutch province Flevoland is the biggest of its kind in the Netherlands and enjoys a unique level of local commitment: residents and businesses of the area have joined forces in the Ontwikkelverening Zeewolde to develop the wind farm.

Ecofys WTTS will provide a 120 m high met mast to gain the necessary wind data for yield calculations and engineering purposes. The mast will be constructed in October. It will be the second mast of this height in the Flevopolder, with the first one being installed at the Ecofys WTTS Test Site Lelystad.

The entire wind measurement campaign is expected to take at least one year. At a later stage, Ecofys WTTS may also conduct LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) measurements to complete the wind resource picture.
