A2Sea Installs Last Rentel Turbine
A2Sea’s jack-up vessel Sea Installer has completed the installation of all 42 turbines at the Rentel offshore wind farm in Belgium.
The vessel commenced the installation of the 7.35MW Siemens Gamesa D7-type turbines at the offshore site 40km off the coast of Ostend at the beginning of May.
The turbine assembly took place at the Port of Oostende, from where Sea Installer picked up two units per trip, meaning 21 trips were made in total.
The 309MW Rentel offshore wind farm is scheduled to be fully commissioned by the end of the year.
The project is being developed by a consortium of eight Belgian shareholders, including Otary Offshore Energy, DEME Group and Elicio NV.
