Oude Maas & Heinenoord

Oude Maas

The province of South Holland established the Vision Space and Mobility on July 9, 2014. This includes both a wind energy location in Binnenmaas, Oude Maas, and Barendrecht, Heinenoord. The VRM states that the Heinenoord and Binnenmaas locations can only be developed in mutual cohesion.


The task is to indicate the landscape impact of both locations, the interaction between the two locations and what the possibilities are for an optimal integration of both locations. Proper mapping of the spatial interaction between the two locations goes further than a regular integration study. We will not only make the local experience aspects visible in a true-to-life manner, but also explain the impact on the readability of the larger landscape structures.

The basis for this study is based on the set-ups and turbine specifications as indicated in the request:

South bank location5 variants are shown to the south of the Oude Maas

North bank location2 variants to the north of the Oude Maas for Heinenoord Barendrecht

For the type of wind turbine we use the proposals made on the South bank. For the turbines to the north of the Oude Maas, no specifications have yet been mentioned in the request for types of turbines. We have chosen to use the same type of turbine for both locations.

As the variants supplied on the South Bank differ minimally from each other, it was decided to initially keep the arrangement on the South Bank the same in all combinations. To maintain an overview, we have only used the smallest and largest wind turbines.
