Sustainable energy generation
A partnership of more than 100 agricultural entrepreneurs from the Noordoostpolder (united in NOP Agrowind and Westermeerwind) and energy company RWE are constructing the largest wind farm in the Netherlands. It is located on shore and near shore along the dikes of the IJsselmeer on the western side of the Noordoostpolder.
The 86 wind turbines of Noordoostpolder Wind Farm will generate 1.4 billion kWh of clean sustainable electricity per year in 2017, enough to power e.g. more than 400,000 households every day. This makes the Noordoostpolder one of the leading European regions in modern wind energy.
The wind farm will also provide jobs, during both the construction and the operational phases. Options for equity participation are being made available to the residents of Noordoostpolder, Urk and former Lemsterland so that they can also benefit from this exceptional sustainable energy project.
