Dutch maritime contracting company Royal Van Oord successfully  installed the last of the in total 44 wind turbines of the Norther offshore wind farm.

Achieving this milestone and already delivering renewable energy makes an important contribution to the energy transition, said a press release from Van Oord.

Van Oord was contracted as main contractor. The entire scope, from cable installation and burial, installation of the Offshore High Voltage Station (OHVS) to turbine installation, was completed ahead of schedule and in less than 9 months.

Van Oord deployed a wide range of equipment at the project, amongst others offshore installation vessel Aeolus, the newest trencher Dig-It and cable-laying vessel Nexus.

The achievement of completing such a complex scope of work in this time frame, is something that all involved on this project can be proud of.

The 370 megawatt offshore wind farm supplies almost 400,000 households with renewable energy. The Norther offshore wind farm will contribute significantly to Belgium meeting its target of generating 13% of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2020.
