Egmond aan Zee Offshore Wind Farm

The Egmond aan Zee wind farm is the first big wind farm build in the North Sea off the Dutch coast. The farm comprises 36 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3 MW. Together they supply enough renewable electricity for more than 100,000 households. This is equivalent to a town the size of Eindhoven.

The farm is located 10 to 18 kilometres from the coast at Egmond aan Zee. The total area of the farm covers around 27 km2. When the weather is fine, the wind farm is visible from the coast.
