The EIA Commission has issued a positive assessment advice for the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Wind Park Maasvlakte 2. The Commission believes that the EIA contains the essential information to be able to take a decision on the Wind Park Maasvlakte 2, in which environmental interests are fully taken into account. Pondera prepared the EIA, the necessary studies and the permit applications.
“The EIA is of very good quality and shows that thorough research has been carried out into the effects of the planned wind turbines. The information has been written in a clear and orderly manner. Extensive research has been carried out in particular for possible effects on protected nature areas and species.”
“The EIA is based on extensive research and background information. Much attention is devoted to topics that are important to this project in terms of environmental effects such as nature, safety and landscape. The Commission endorses this and appreciates the thorough and project-specific substantiation of the EIA.”
With Wind Park Maasvlakte 2, Eneco, Rijkswaterstaat and the municipality of Rotterdam want to contribute to the generation of sustainable energy in the Netherlands. Eneco is building 22 wind turbines on Maasvlakte 2 on behalf of Rijkswaterstaat, which will provide the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and Rijkswaterstaat with 100% green electricity by generating more than 400 GWh of green electricity annually from 2023.
