Rentel Gains Financial Close for OWF Project in Belgian North Sea

Rentel NV has reached financial close for the construction of a new offshore wind farm off the Belgian coast.

The Rentel project, located 40 kilometers north of Ostend, will be the fifth offshore wind project in the Belgian North Sea.

This new offshore power station will consist of 42 turbines and a total installed capacity of 309 MW. The total investment is 1,1 billion euros.

The 42 offshore wind turbines will be installed and maintained by Siemens.

Turbines will be connected via underground cables to an offshore substation, where the generated electricity is transformed to 220 kilovolts and then transported to shore through a subsea cable to Zeebrugge, where it will be further distributed on land. Rentel is currently building a new operations centre in the port of Ostend, from where the Rentel wind farm will be built and managed.
