AbstractThe Dutch energy company Eneco received the concession to construct a 116 MW windfarm on the Maasvlakte-2, a recent large seaward port extension of the Port of Rotterdam. The land reclamation is protected partly by a hard sea defence and partly by a soft sea defence, consisting of a sandy beach and adjacent dunes. Twelve wind turbines with a monopile foundation will be constructed on the beach, close to or in the waterline. The beach is erosive and is maintained by regular beach and foreshore nourishments. Designing and constructing wind turbines in this dynamic environment forms an unprecedented challenge.
