To remind, the substation topside began its journey towards Bladt's premises in Aalborg from Mostostal Pomorze in Poland in mid-April.

Bladt is responsible for designing, building and installing the substation, as well as for monopile foundations which will house the turbines and the topside.

The 219MW Northwester 2 wind farm will comprise 23 MHI Vestas 164-9.5MW turbines located some 50km north-west of Oostende in the Belgian North Sea.

Offshore construction is expected to start in June this year, with commissioning expected in 2020.
