DEME has successfully completed the installation of 58 monopile foundations and two offshore substation foundations at the SeaMade offshore wind farm in the Belgian North Sea. The last monopile foundation landed on the seabed on 2 January 2020.
Installation works kicked off in September 2019 with DEME’s offshore installation vessel ‘Innovation’. Turbine installation will start in spring 2020 with offshore installation vessel ‘Apollo’ and with the port of Ostend as load-out port for the Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy 8.4 MW turbines. DEME will also install all inter-array cables with cable lay vessel ‘Living Stone’ after successfully having installed the export cable.
Before the end of 2020, SeaMade will provide renewable energy to 485 000 households in Belgium.
