DEME to begin installing foundations at Belgium’s largest offshore wind farm
DEME’s installation vessel Innovation will set sail to the Belgian North Sea with the first load of 58 turbine foundations and transition pieces for installation at the SeaMade offshore wind farm.
DEME’s scope includes the installation of the 58 foundations and all inter-array cables, the installation of two offshore substations and the 220kV submarine high voltage cable installation. In the spring of 2020, the 8.4MW turbines will be installed on the foundations.
With a 487MW capacity, SeaMade is the largest offshore wind farm in Belgium. It is a combination of two offshore wind projects, previously known as Mermaid (235 MW) and Seastar (252 MW).
Before the end of 2020, SeaMade is expected to provide renewable energy to up to 500,000 households in Belgium.
