The first wind turbines in the 370MW Norther offshore wind farm, he largest offshore wind farm in Belgium, has delivered first power to the Belgian grid.

Construction on Norther is still in full swing. But four of the turbines that are already finished were connected to the power grid today, providing thousands of families with green power generated by the largest wind turbines in the country.

"This is the first step towards the full delivery of the park, expected this Summer. Starting up Norther is an important step towards ensuring supply security in our country. Norther will provide electricity to 400.000 families," said a press note.

The installation of Norther's 44 turbines began earlier this month. It is the final and most crucial stage in the construction of Belgium's largest offshore wind farm.

Twelve turbines have already been installed, and today, the first turbines are being connected to Stevin, the new high-voltage station of Elia in Zeebrugge. That way, the wind energy generated will flow into the power grid and will be sold to Engie (50%) and Eneco (50%).
