This week, the first electricity has been generated by the Belgian offshore wind farm Norther. Only 7 months ago, Van Oord started with the installation of the first foundation and already the first power is delivered to the grid.
As the main contractor, Van Oord started the offshore execution in August 2018. The modified offshore installation vessel Aeolus has installed all 45 foundations at the designated locations in record time. Recently, the placement of the first wind turbines followed. As a result, thousands of Belgian families have already been provided with green energy.
This milestone is a big step towards the final goal. The offshore wind farm will be fully operational in the summer of 2019 and will provide almost 400,000 households with sustainable energy. The Northern offshore wind farm will contribute significantly to Belgium meeting its target of generating 13% of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2020.
