Vleemo to build Flanders’ biggest wind energy park
19 new turbines
A joint venture between Aspiravi and Polders Investeringsfonds, Vleemo built its first two wind turbines in the Port of Antwerp 12 years ago. Now the Flanders-based energy company is investing EUR 110 million to begin the construction of 19 new turbines next year and, in doing so, build the largest onshore wind turbine park in Flanders. As part of a larger plan to make Antwerp energy neutral, the park will generate enough electricity to sustain 40,000 households.
Plans for the future
Vleemo has short-term plans to build seven turbines on top of the currently installed 387. In the long term, the company aims to build another 60 to 100 wind turbines north of the former Opel site in Antwerp. This would require an investment of between EUR 300 and 500 million, and would provide energy for up to 200,000 families. From the launch of the project onwards, the company hopes to install 10 to 15 turbines every year.
