Gemini is located 85 kilometers from the coast of Groningen and is expected to generate energy to meet the needs of 1.5 million people in the Netherlands and reduce country’s CO2 emissions by 1.25 million tons per year.

Gemini park counts with 150 turbines, all fully operating since October 2016, and with a total revenue of €250 million of net pre-completion revenues.
