SeaMade Produces First Power
The first turbine at the SeaMade offshore wind project has begun producing power to the Belgian grid.
DEME Offshore’s jack-up vessel Apollo installed the first Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbine at the project site in mid-June.
SeaMade will comprise a total of 58 turbines located some 50km off the Belgian North Sea coast and scheduled to be fully up and running by the end of this year.
Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) will provide temporary power during the project’s turbine commissioning phase.
The 487 MW wind farm is a combination of the 235 MW Mermaid and the 252 MW Seastar offshore wind projects.
