June 4 (Renewables Now) - German energy company Innogy SE (ETR:IGY) can proceed with the construction of the 150-MW N33 wind farm in the Netherlands after final objections to the project have been declared unfounded by the Council of State.

With the appeals process behind, construction of the wind farm will commence this summer, Innogy said last week.

The wind farm, equipped with 35 turbines, will be located along the N33 freeway in the Dutch province of Groningen. Its developers, Innogy Windpower Netherlands and Windpark Vermeer BV, expect to complete construction in the autumn of 2020.

Once online, the wind farm will generate approximately 500 GWh per year meeting the annual power needs of around 140,000 households.
