Windpark Growind, near the Eemshaven, is the first wind park in the Netherlands to operate the new 4.5 MW L-136 wind turbine from turbine builder Lagerwey. Construction of the turbine was completed in April. The platform of the L-136 turbine differentiates itself from its competition in that it can be placed in high-wind coastal locations and also in forested locations, where large differences may arise between the wind supply at the maximum and minimum tip height. Another impressive feature of the L-136, which significantly reduces construction costs, is its revolutionary climbing crane, which will be used to build the second turbine at the Growind site. The modular tower is constructed by moving up the crane with every new section of the tower to its ultimate height of 132 meters.
