The Netherlands: offshore wind-farm

Shell and Dutch energy company Nuon have signed the final contracts for their joint realisation of the first Dutch offshore wind farm, located at Egmond aan Zee, 10 miles outside the Dutch coast. NoordzeeWind (a 50/50 joint venture between Shell and Nuon) awarded the construction contract to Bouwcombinatie Egmond, a joint venture between Dutch offshore contractor Ballast Nedam and Danish wind-turbine manufacturer Vestas. The project involves an investment in excess of EUR 200 million. Thirty-six wind turbines with an overall capacity of 108MW will be constructed 10km off the coast of Egmond aan Zee (the Netherlands). From the end of 2006, the wind farm will start generating sustainable energy, which Nuon will supply to the Dutch market.
