An offshore wind farm with a capacity of 487 MW will be built in the North Sea

Dema Group will build a 487 MW wind farm in the North Sea. It is reported by Ecotown.

The SeaMade project will be located off the coast of Belgium. By the end of 2020, the offshore wind farm will be able to produce electricity for 485 thousand households in Belgium.

On January 2, 2020, the last of the 58 single-foundation supports of a wind turbine was installed on the seabed.

Dema began work in September 2019. The support was dealt with by the specialized vessel Deme Innovation. The installation of wind turbines, which will begin in the spring of 2020, will be carried out by the Apollo vessel. The transshipment site for 8.4 MW turbines, which will be supplied by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, will be the port of Ostend.

It was previously reported that China had built an offshore wind farm in record time – less than a year. According to IEA forecasts, 110 GW of offshore wind farms will operate in China in 2040.
