The Rentel offshore wind farm will comprise 42 Siemens D7 wind turbines, each with an individual capacity of 7.35MW, installed on monopile foundations in the Belgian North Sea.

Under the contract, Siemens Gamesa is in charge of providing customized offshore service and logistics solutions for the turbines, including Siemens’ data-driven remote diagnostics and monitoring.

The first turbines are expected to deliver power to the grid by mid-2018, with full commissioning scheduled by year-end.

The wind farm is being developed by Rentel NV, a consortium of eight Belgian shareholders, including Otary Offshore Energy, DEME Group and Elicio NV.
