Windpark Westfrisia reaches Financial Close. BLIX was responsible for the contracting of the wind turbines, the civil and electrical works and the grid connection. Windpark Westfrisia awarded BLIX with a follow up assignment for construction management, which means continuing the works. BLIX currently puts her expertise in the next phase of realising the wind farm. The onshore wind farm will excist of five wind turbines that will be constructed along de Westfrisiaweg (N302) nearbij Zwaagbijk in Municipality Medemblik.
Market knowledge with track record
Jan Pronk of Windpark Westfrisia:
“BLIX has tightly managed the tender en construction phase. They know the turbine manufacturers and the contractor and they set up the contracts. It is also a logical step that BLIX is leading the construction and takes care of the site supervision. There is confident and also during that phase of a wind energy project BLIX has good understanding and a good track record.
Mark Duppen (Manager Onshore Wind at BLIX):
“We are very proud to have been part of the contracting team of Westfrisia and reach Financial Close with them. We are happy to have received the assignment to manage the construction phase, we are confident that Enercon and Volkerwind will do a great job”
In September 2017 the wind farm received an environmental permit. The wind farm will generate 10 till 13 MW, which will contribute to reach the renewable energy goals for North Holland in 2020. First works have already started and mid 2019 the wind farm is expected to be operational.
Enercon and VolkerWind will construct the wind farm. Enercon supplies and constructs the five wind turbines. VolkerWind is responsible for realising the access roads and the cabling of the turbines to the new consumer substation.
