This morning the topside of the MOG left the construction site in Zwijndrecht and was loaded onto the barge.
This is the first step in the journey towards its final destination in the North Sea. The topside will be fitted onto the jacket later this month.
Once completed, Elia’s first ‘plug at sea’ will bundle the cables of future offshore wind farms and connect them to Belgium’s onshore grid. The MOG is due to be commissioned in Q3 of 2019. The full capacity will be available in 2020.
