The Netherlands’ first wind farm in the North Sea is performing well

Construction has had no effects on marine life

The performance of the Egmond aan Zee Offshore Wind Farm, which has been in operation since the beginning of this year, has been excellent to date. Thanks in part to the stormy weather of the first three months of 2007, during which there has been a great deal of wind, more than 111 million kilowatt hours of electricity have been produced. This is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of more than 33,000 households. The Egmond aan Zee Offshore Wind Farm was today officially inaugurated by HRH the Prince of Orange.
