Ballast Nedam Development launches climate positive Nature House made of straw
The new wind turbines outside the dikes are part of Windplanblauw: an initiative of SwifterwinT and Vattenfall. This plan consists of a wind farm in the municipality of Dronten and Lelystad, where 74 wind turbines will be replaced by 61 larger turbines, with a total installed capacity of more than 335 MW. Of these, 37 will be on land. The 24 turbines in the IJsselmeer will be designed and realised by Ballast Nedam, with Mammoet jointly responsible for the transport and installation of the turbines.
The design work is now in full swing and work will start at the project location in March 2022. The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in the last quarter of 2023.
“We are looking forward to working with Windplanblauw. We are confident to realise this project within the set frameworks together with our project partners”, says Ronald de Geus, Managing Director Ballast Nedam Infra Projects.
In order to arrive at a feasible and efficient working method, Ballast Nedam worked intensively on various design and construction solutions during the construction team phase, together with Windplanblauw and project partners. “It is our strength to use the knowledge and experience of all parties involved in the right way. We are aware that a project can only be successfully delivered with good cooperation.”
