OFFSHORE WIND FARM DISMANTLED IN THE NETHERLANDS

Netherlands Nuon has dismantled four offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 2 MW at the Lely wind farm in Ijsselmeer, some 600 metres off the port of Medemblik.

The wind farm has been in service for 22 years and is the first offshore wind farm operated by Nuon to be decommissioned and dismantled.

Nuon decided to decommission the wind farm as it was approaching the end of its operating life and was becoming less profitable.

Watch the time lapse video of the dismantling which was completed in three weeks.
