Vattenfall is now making its largest investment ever in the Netherlands. The Swedish utility has decided to spend over EUR 200 million on the installation of onshore wind farm Wieringermeer.

The project partly consists of repowering of 49 old turbines, which will be replaced with 50 new machines to increase capacity from 73.5 MW to 180 MW. The other part is the adjacent expansion project, in which the Swedish firm bought a stake earlier this month, where Vattenfall will add another 32 turbines and 115 MW. The first phase is expected to be finished in 2019, while 295 MW will be spinning the following year.
