The Noordoostpolder windfarm is an important step in building an ecologically and economically sustainable energy system for which innogy stands for. As one of the major onshore wind operators in Europe, I’m pleased that we contribute together with our partners in this project to the goals stated in the Dutch energy agreement "

Wind farm Noordoostpolder

The 429 megawatts wind farm with a total capacity of 86 wind turbines are developed and maintained by different partners. The turbines are installed onshore along the coastal dike and just outside the coast in the IJsselmeer. The combined production of the 86 turbines is sufficient to supply approximately 400,000 households annually with green electricity. innogy and the local companies NOP Agrowind and Westermeerwind each developed their own part in the complete project wind farm Noordoostpolder. innogy maintains 12 onshore turbines of the in total 86 turbines.
