Amsterdam port project negotiations for 21 MW wind farm

Amsterdam Port Authority is now in firm negotiations with an unnamed party concerning a 21 MW wind farm which is due to be constructed by June 1, 2006. Fourteen bids to build the project have been submitted to the authority, but talks are taking place with only one party. A final decision is expected soon. The Dutch port authority has made a site available in the so-called Afrikahaven. Seven wind turbines, up to 100 metres tall, can be placed there. Bidders had to have at least five years of experience in developing wind farms. So far wind turbines have been placed at four locations in the port area, collectively generating 13 MW. In 2004, Amsterdam Port Authority drew up a policy document named Westpoort Windmills, outlining where wind turbines can be sited in the port. For the most part, they will be positioned in a linear layout, from north to south. The port authority is keen to contribute to Amsterdam City's policy of reducing CO2 emissions and saving fossil energy sources, it states.
