Marine energy infrastructure company Van Oord has commissioned the construction of a vessel to be used in the build of offshore wind farms, as it announces the completion of the first phase of the Belwind project.
Van Oord was responsible for the design and construction of all the foundations, the electrical infrastructure and the connection to the onshore grid at the wind farm, located off the coast of Zeebrugge, Belgium.
The Belwind Phase I Offshore Wind Farm includes 55 wind turbines and one offshore high voltage station.
The vessel the company has commissioned will be constructed at the Sietas shipyard in Hamburg, Germany and will be fitted with a crane capable of hoisting 900 tonnes.
The Belwind farm comprises 55 Vestas V90 turbines, each capable of producing a maximum power output of 3MW.
