The consortium around Nobelwind announces the start of the construction on their new wind farm in Belgian territorial waters. The park, at approximately 45 kilometres off the coast of Zeebrugge, should be operational by 2017. Nobelwind has already installed its offshore grid which is operational and connected to the substation of the grid operator. The start of the works is running according to planning. March 23rd, the first foundation components arrived in the harbour of Oostende.
Oostende will be used as marshalling harbour. All foundation components will be assembled here. The first installation offshore is expected to start early May.
