The Transportation Ministry of the Netherlands has issued a construction permit for a new wind turbine farm in the North Sea. This will be the largest such facility located in Dutch waters so far, and is part of the country’s plan to generate 6,000 megawatts of electricity from offshore windmills by 2020.


The new wind farm is being developed by Ireland’s Airtricity Ltd. It is planned to generate 260 megawatts of electricity, which is enough to power 320,000 homes according to the ministry. The wind farm will be located 25 kilometers off of Rotterdam.


The wind park is scheduled for completion in 2013, according to the ministry’s statement.
