According to project developer Norther NV, the 40th turbine was installed yesterday morning, with the last load ahead.

Aeolus began installing the first MHI Vestas 8.4MW turbines at the site some 23km offshore Zeebrugge at the beginning of February.

The 370MW offshore wind farm delivered first power to the Belgian grid at the end of February after the first four turbines were connected to Stevin, Elia’s new high-voltage station.

Norther is expected to be commissioned this summer when it will become the largest offshore wind farm in Belgian waters. It is also the first Belgian wind farm to feature turbines with 8MW+ individual capacity.
