Construction work has begun on the Netherlands' largest onshore wind project to date, Evelop's 44 MW Koegorspolder wind farm south of Terneuzen. The Vestas 2 MW turbines are also the biggest yet employed in the country, says Evelop International, part of the Econcern group. It expects to connect the first turbine to the grid at the end of September, with the EUR 50 million project being fully commissioned by the end of the year. "The project fits well into our target projection of creating four thousand megawatt of renewable energy capacity in the next five to eight years," says Evelop's Dennis Lange.
