Wind Farm Etten-Leur
Family of farmers replaces five wind turbines.
Grandparents Rommens had a foresight. Seventeen years ago they were the first to place five wind turbines on their own land. Nowadays the next generation is in charge of the farm in Etten-Leur. On Valentine's Day they signed the contracts for the purchase and maintenance of three new Vestas wind turbines and a day later for the foundations and the electrical infrastructure. The new wind turbines will be higher and therefor more efficient and quiet. They shall provide twice the energy as the current turbines do. This is a benefit to the environment and the third generation, the successors of the future.
"Entrepreneurship in wind still requires a pioneering spirit. Achieving the realization phase feels like seeing the finish of a marathon. We are tired, but charged for the final phase ", says daughter Jolanda Rommens.
BLIX was leading in the tender negotiations to select the most efficient wind turbines and balance of plant contracts. This on behalf of the family and their partner Renewable Energy Factory.
