Nobelwind has announced the beginning of construction works for Belgian Nobelwind offshore wind farm, also known as Belwind 2 or Bligh Bank II.

The first activities will be performed in the port of Oostende, on the REBO site, where the first foundation components are expected to arrive today (March 23).

As of the end of March, additional foundation components are expected to be delivered on site every 2 to 3 weeks. The REBO site will be used for final assembly of the foundations.

The cranes and other equipment needed to perform the assembly works will be installed in the coming days on site by different contractors.

Nobelwind, a consortium between the Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo, the Dutch investor Meewind, and Parkwind, has installed the offshore grid which is operational and connected to Elia’s Zeebrugge substation.

The developer has appointed Jan De Nul as the EPCI contractor for the installation of all foundations, as well as the fifty 3.3MW MHI Vestas wind turbines.

The first installation offshore is expected to start in early May. By that date, an installation vessel will pick up different foundation components and prepare for installation offshore.

The installation of foundations is expected to last until the beginning of September, subject to weather conditions.
