This is an on-shore wind farm on and near the Kreekraksluizen. These are water locks located in the Schelde-Rijn Canal in the municipality of Reimerswaal in the province of Zeeland, the Netherlands. The wind farm has been operational since 2013 and has a capacity of sixteen 2.5 MW Nordex turbines. With a combined capacity of 40 MW, this provides the electricity needs of more than 28,000 households annually.

Due to the favourable location of the wind farm, the energy consumption of the locks is more flexible. The supply of sustainable energy depends on weather conditions: when it is windy, there is a greater supply of energy. With this flexibility, a cost advantage of approximately 10% is achieved.
