Irene Vorrink – a nearshore wind farm
The turbines of the wind farm are placed very close to the shore at an average water depth of 5 metres. The turbines stand in a long row, parallel to the shore. This type of farm is called a nearshore farm and the wind turbines can be easily reached from the shore by a small gangway.
Irene Vorrink Wind Farm was commissioned in 1997. The turbines are mounted on conical tubular steel towers, with a cylindrical steel monopole foundation. Today the 28 turbines have a total capacity of 16.8 MW.
