General – Energy Island
On February 28 OER International/Ocean Energy Resources, already announced, via its news site, the construction of the world’s first energy island.
DEME Group and Jan De Nul Group, both from Belgium, form the joint venture TM EDISON, which is going to design and construct the island in the Belgian North Sea for transmission system operator Elia.
The island will be a crucial link in Belgium’s energy supply. It will open up the future Princess Elisabeth wind zone (3.5 GW) and connect Belgium with Great Britain and Denmark via new interconnectors (Nautilus and TritonLink respectively).
Curious to see how the island will be constructed?
