Windpark Fryslân: bird’s eye view of logistics at the largest wind farm on inland water

Blades, towers, hubs: a wide range of wind turbine parts have been delivered from the Amsterdam ports in recent times to the construction site of the largest inland water wind farm park in the Netherlands. The 89th and last turbine left the TMA Logistics terminal in the Amerikahaven in October and Windpark Fryslân is now ready for action. Port of Amsterdam and AYOP have made a fascinating drone video that captures the vital role of the North Sea Canal region in this giant logistical undertaking.


Windpark Fryslân, which will have a capacity of around 380 MW and supply power to some 500,000 households, is the fifth largest wind farm to be installed from this region

 

The Amsterdam-IJmuiden region has made a major contribution to realising the largest inland water wind farm, leveraging on its facilities and expertise to enable smooth logistics, assembly and parts production. In addition to TMA Logistics, various other locations in the ports of IJmuiden and Amsterdam have played a key role. Moreover, with the completion of the Energy Port in Ijmuiden in 2025, we will also be able to facilitate the installation of the future offshore wind farms off the North Sea coast.
