Offshore Windpark Egmond aan Zee
The Egmond aan Zee wind farm was the first big wind farm to be built in the North Sea off the Dutch coast. The farm comprises 36 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3 MW. Together they will supply enough renewable electricity for more than 100,000 households. This is equivalent to a town the size of Eindhoven.
The farm is located 10 to 18 kilometres from the coast at Egmond aan Zee. The total area of the farm covers around 27 km2 . When the weather is fine, the wind farm is visible from the coast.
This offshore wind farm contributes towards making energy supply more sustainable. The knowledge and experience gained from this project will be used for the future development of wind energy as a source of renewable energy. The Ministry of Economic Affairs has also clearly designated the farm as a demonstration project.
