Scottish and Southern Energy gets OK for wind farm

Scottish and Southern Energy gets OK for wind farm

The Netherlands government has approved Scottish and Southern Energy's plans to build a 260 megawatt wind farm in the North Sea, the company said Thursday.
The "West Rijn" wind farm, the largest approved in the Netherlands, would consist of 72 turbines moored about 40 kilometers (25 miles) off of the Dutch coast, Scottish and Southern Energy PLC said. The company said its focus was now on getting funding from the Dutch government for the plan.
"The Dutch market is an important new area for SSE's renewable development team and 'West Rijn' is the first in a number of projects which will give us the opportunity to become the leading offshore wind developer in The Netherlands," said Paul Dowling, chief executive of SSE's renewable development division.
SSE, one of Britain's top energy suppliers, said the wind farm was part of The Netherlands' plan to have 6,000 megawatts of offshore wind capacity by 2020.
