The Council of State dismissed eight objections filed against the final permits for Windpark Fryslân and thus cleared the way for the construction of the project in the Frisian part of the IJsselmeer near Breezanddijk in the Netherlands.

The construction is scheduled to start in 2019, with the wind farm expected to be fully operational in 2021.

Windpark Fryslân is proposed to have some 89 wind turbines and a capacity of at least 316MW. According to the developer, the installed capacity of the wind farm cannot yet be indicated at this point since, in addition to the outcome of the wind measurements, this is also influenced by various factors affecting costs and yields, such as the choice of wind turbines.

The exact project capacity will be known at the time of the financial close.

Project director Anne de Groot of Windpark Fryslân said the ruling of the Council of State was an important breakthrough for the project, which is financially supported by the Dutch Province of Friesland.

The wind farm is being developed by Ventolines BV on behalf of Windpark Friesland BV.

The developer also said it will establish a community fund, which will contribute some EUR 500,000 annually to the local community from 2022 onwards. The first donation to the fund by Windpark Fryslân will take place immediately after the end of the first production year and will be doine annually for 20 years.
