Work Starts for Norther Offshore Wind Farm Cable Landing in Zeebrugge

Norther NV has started work on the beach of Zeebrugge in order to connect the Norther Offshore wind farm to the Belgian electricity grid.

The work follows the completion of the installation of the high-voltage station at sea in the middle of August, the company said.

The cable-laying vessel Nexus will lay the 24-kilometer long cable on the seabed which will be buried by a specially equipped excavator.

A cable layer will then bring the cable further ashore in Zeebrugge where close to the coastline, the Nessie II mechanical excavator will take over the cable.

Mobile cranes will lay the last 450 meters of cable on the beach. With the export cable, Norther will be directly connected to the new Stevin high voltage station in Zeebrugge.

Norther is currently building the foundations for the 44 wind turbines, which will be operational from Q3 2019. The wind farm will take care of the annual electricity production of nearly 400,000 families.
