DEME Offshore has installed the first turbine at the SeaMade offshore wind farm in the Belgian North Sea.
With a 487 MW capacity, SeaMade is the largest offshore wind farm in Belgium.
DEME Offshore’s DP2 offshore installation vessel Apollo will now install 58 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines on the monopile foundations.
Michael Glavind, Business Unit Director DEME Offshore: “After the successful installation of the foundations, offshore substations and subsea cables, the start of the turbine installation campaign brings us another step closer to the production of green energy. This is also the first turbine installation project for our offshore installation vessel Apollo, which has just completed a foundation piling project in Scotland. This vessel’s ability to multitask highlights the versatility of our fleet and our ability to handle all aspects of the most complex offshore wind farms.”
