Belgium completed construction of the largest wind farm in the North Sea

The largest wind farm in the North Sea has been completed off the coast of the Belgian city of Ostend, Ecotown reports.

On November 29, the last wind turbine of the SeaMade project, which is being implemented by the Dema group of companies, was installed. The project cost is 1.3 billion euros.

The wind farm with a capacity of 487 MW consists of 8.4-megawatt turbines. It is envisaged that the offshore wind farm SeaMade will produce about 10% of the total electricity the country needs and will be able to generate electricity to meet the energy needs of 485 thousand households in Belgium.

“Belgium ranks fourth in the world in offshore wind energy, with only 8 TWh of electricity currently produced offshore,” Energy Minister Tinne Van der Straeten tweeted. "This electricity is enough to supply energy to about 2.2 million households."

Earlier it was reported that by 2050 the European Union would increase the capacity of offshore wind farms to 300 GW.
