Port of Ostend to House Rentel's Turbine Assembly

The Port of Ostend has signed a one-year contract to serve as an assembly base for wind turbines during the construction of Belgian Rentel offshore wind farm, according to national media. 

Yesterday, Rentel signed an agreement with Siemens for the supply of 42 7MW offshore wind turbines and 17 years of service and maintenance.

The EUR 1.25 billion project should reach the financial close by the summer of this year, so that construction works can begin in early 2017. The assembly of Siemens' wind turbines at the port is expected to start in 2018. 

After the wind farm is built and operational, Siemens will use the port for maintenance of the turbines.
