The first of the old wind turbines that are located in the area where Zeewolde Wind Farm will rise has been dismantled. It concerns a wind turbine located at the Dodaarsweg. It is one of a group of wind turbines that are located in too close proximity of the future new wind turbines.
In total, 220 old wind turbines will be replaced by 91 more modern and powerful models. All old wind turbines will have to be removed before 2027. Windpark Zeewolde BV has agreed with all wind turbine owners on the date of decommissioning. Some of the wind turbines that are located in too close proximity of the new wind turbines, however, will be removed first. The removed wind turbine will start a new life in Ireland.
At the end of April, Windpark Zeewolde BV announced that it all purchasing contracts are in place. Road preparation and transformer station construction will start at the end of 2019. Turbine installation work will follow in 2020. Source: Windparkzeewolde.nl
