Wind farm Jacobahaven
The wind turbines are situated in a circular around Jacobahaven harbour on the Southern entry to the Oosterscheldekering (municipality Noord-Beveland).
Windpark Jacobahaven is owned and operated by Windpark Zeeland I B.V., a joint-venture of Triodos Ventures and E-Connection. The wind farm was commissioned in September 2006.
From 1990 until 2006 a wind farm of five wind turbines of 250 kW each stood at this location. These five wind turbines, from the first generation, produced about 10% of the energy generated by rhe present wind turbines. E-Connection secured the permits for the construction and operation of these wind turbines and managed the contracting and commissioning. E-Connection executes the daily management of the operating company Windpark Zeeland I BV.
By remote control system the wind farm is controlled and monitored continuously by the operators from E-Connection.
