This morning, the jack-up vessel WIND arrived at the Port of Oostende for the first time, where it will pick up parts for the Belwind offshore wind farm.
The vessel is carrying out maintenance work on Belwind.
The Belwind offshore wind farm comprises fifty five Vestas' V90-3.0MW (MHI Vestas Offshore Wind).
Both Parkwind, the owner of the wind farm, and MHI Vestas Offshore Wind have offices and storage space on the Rebo terminal in the Port of Oostende. MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, which signed a cooperation agreement with DBB Jack-Up Services, maintains its 127 turbines located in the Belgian part of the North Sea from the port of Oostende.
DBB Jack-Up Services' jack up vessel WIND has already replaced more than 370 major parts of turbines, making it the most experienced O&M jack-up vessel in the sector.
Belwind has been operational since 2010 and provides green electricity for 160,000 households.
