Offshore Wind Exhibition at Dutch Museum of Dredging
The Dutch National Museum of Dredging has opened an exhibition titled Offshore wind – Challenge at sea, which will run from October 8, 2015 to March 14, 2016.
The exhibition is made possible through the contribution of photographs, films, models and information from Eneco, Van Oord, Boskalis, ECN, Royal IHC, Royal Dirkzwager VBMS, Sif, Wind Cats and Jan De Nul.
The visitors have an opportunity to see how the old windmill technology has developed into wind turbine generators. Wind turbines are getting larger, thus the size of the offshore foundations increasing and are installed with specially designed ships.
Off the Dutch coast, several wind farms are in operation or being constructed. Offshore Windpark Egmond aan Zee, Princess Amaliawindpark and Eneco Luchterduinen are already operational. Gemini offshore wind farm north of Groningen is still under construction.
