By the summer, Wageningen University will switch from being a net consumer of renewable energy to a net producer as it completes the installation of 20 Enercon 2.3 MW wind turbines at Lelystad on a site owned by the university. Funded by Triodos Bank, the wind turbines will be installed in two lines, the Neushoorntochtlijn (rhinoceros line) and Mammoethtochtlijn (mammoth line). Each row will have ten wind turbines. Turbines in the rhino line will have a hub height of 64 metres and in the mammoth line they will be 70 metres tall. The turbines are expected to be fully operational by July and will be operated by Wageningen University.
