Construction activities have recently started in the Oosterhorn Wind Farm in Delfzijl. The wind farm will comprise 18 Vestas 4.3 MW wind turbines and is expected to be ready at the end of 2021.

The wind farm is being built on the Oosterhorn industrial estate in Delfzijl. It is an initiative by Eneco and YARD Energy. The wind farm is split in a southern and northern section. YARD ENERGY has handed over the exploitation of nine wind turbines in the southern section to Eurus Energy. Eneco is responsible for the northern section.

The construction activities are being performed by Van Hattum en Blankevoort. At the moment, the company has completed the installation of 74 piles for the first wind turbine and is now working at the next turbine location. The piling activities for each turbine location takes approximately two weeks.

The first tower sections have already arrived in the port of Eemshaven. They are stored at Buss Terminal Eemshaven. Turbine installation activities are planned for mid August. The wind farm is connected to the substation Weiwerd, owned by TenneT. The power generated by the wind farm will be used by local households and businesses on the industrial estate.
