Premature offshore wind farm pilot news

News of a proposed offshore pilot wind farm to be developed by the Dutch Energy Research Centre (ECN) seems to have slipped out before its initiators were ready. According to Dutch regional news paper, the Wieringer Courant, ECN and the North Holland utility Energie Noord West (ENW), are to co-operate on a national offshore test plant in the Wieringermeer. It is reported that the project, which is intended to provide data for both the proposed in-shore Afsluitdijk project and for a long-mooted North Sea plant, will comprise a maximum of six turbines and receive an NLG 10 million subsidy from the province of North Holland. ENW, however, denies any involvement beyond the provision of grid access and ECN, while acknowledging the project is under discussion, advises that details will only be available in late summer.
