The following developments in the realization of the Windplanblauw project can currently be discovered…
The Balance of Plant is ready for the onshore part of the project (foundations, cable infrastructure and roads). Now it is the turn of the supplier and builder Vestas of the wind turbines for the onshore part of Windplanblauw. These 37 Vestas Enventus V 162 turbines will be built, installed and tested according to schedule and the required quality standards while controlling the budget. In order to get the wind turbine components that are produced in various corners of the world on site, transports are organized from the port of Amsterdam over the water to Flevokust Haven, from where they are transported by axle to the relevant locations.
Irene Vorrink wind farm being dismantled
At the same time, the 28 wind turbines with the characteristic bridges of the Vattenfall wind farm Irene Vorrink will be dismantled and removed. These wind turbines were a very familiar sight to many commuters passing by through the years… The skyline of Swifterbant will definitely have a landmark appearance when the Vestas wind turbines are standing. During the Wind Day at the end of April, interested parties can visit Windplanblauw and, while listening, gain a lot of knowledge about the how and why of the construction and later the functioning of the wind farm.
Organization of the Nearshore part of Windplan Blue
Recent and current developments
Because Windplanblauw’s working area is expanding to the water of the Markermeer, where 24 wind turbines will be built, the organization has taken an extra operating base in the office on the north side of the Houtribdijk in Lelystad. From here the “Marine Coordination” is conducted and the Marine Warranty Surveyor is also located; After all, all vessels are monitored for a solid coordination of all shipping movements. The HSSE team also has its basis here for coordinating safety on the work site where all parties involved are active. This team also checks the work plans and lifting plans, supported by specialist advisors. The work area of the Nearshore part has been prepared for construction by installing buoys by Rijkswaterstaat. The various work vessels are granted access to the work area here in order to be able to build the foundations and infrastructure
We are following these developments with great interest for the construction of the beautiful project, for current information, also look at www.windplanblauw.nl
