BP Builds Wind Power Project at Brownfield Site

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] A brownfield site in Amsterdam, which owned by the international energy company British Petroleum (BP), will get a new look in the spring. BP has begun construction of a nine MW wind project at its oil terminal in the port of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The BP Amsterdam Terminal (BAT) is a modern import/export terminal for fuels products such as propane, butane, gasoline, jet-fuel, gas oil and fuel oil. The project will have capacity to provide sufficient electricity for some 5,000 Dutch homes, and should displace 5,000 tons of carbon dioxide. Vestas will supply the three turbines for the 9 MW project in Amsterdam. Electricity generated at the site should be available for sale to the Dutch power grid by the late spring of 2005. BP completed a similar brownfield project of a 22.5 MW wind power facility at the Nerefco refinery near Rotterdam, which is under a joint ownership with Chevron Texaco.
