Nordex to equip 33MW wind farm in The Netherlands


The Nordex Group has received a combined order of 33 MW for a wind farm in the Netherlands. The Group will supply nine N117/3600 turbines for the Den Tol wind farm.

The turbines will be supplied in operating mode of 3,675 MW. The order also includes a contract for the Premium Service for turbines for a term of 25 years.

Local development

Den Tol will be located in the east of the Netherlands, near Netterden, near the Dutch-German border. The wind farm has been developed over a number of years by a group of local farmers, along with Windunie Development, a Dutch expert in the development and operation of local renewable energy projects.

The construction of the turbines is planned for October 2021 and the wind farm is due to be finished in the spring of 2022. The turbines will be provided with 120-meter tubular steel towers which will be mounted on special foundations such that the final hub height will be 125 meters. At this height, the average wind speed for the European inland site is 6.8 m/s. Customer Den Tol Exploitatie expects an average output of 9.8 million kilowatt hours per turbine. For an annual intake of roughly 15 KWh/100 km, which will correspond to the power demand of 6,500 electric cars per 10,000 km of driving distance.
