Dick Gort, CEO of a.s.r. real estate: ‘a.s.r. wants to be a leader in sustainable entrepreneurship within the financial sector. I’m proud that we are acquiring three wind farms this year, thereby increasing our share in sustainable energy projects in which we are investing on behalf of a.s.r. Together with the Jaap Rodenburg wind farm in Almere en a part of Ariane wind farm in the Wieringermeer, we will soon own three operational wind farms. In the future, we will continue to focus on sustainable energy sources that contribute to the energy transition and a sustainable living environment.’
About Nieuwe Hemweg wind farm
Nieuwe Hemweg wind farm is characterised by its unique location and cooperation. NS (Dutch Railways) owns the land on which the windmills stand. Vattenfall built the wind farm and the land around it belongs to ProRail. It’s the first wind farm in the Netherlands right next to a train siding. The wind farm reopened on 7 July 2021. Vattenfall replaced the eight turbines by six more powerful wind turbines on the NS premises in the Amsterdam port.
