Siemens to build windfarm Rentel out of Ostend Port

Yesterday, January 5th, Rebo NV and Siemens Wind Power signed a concession agreement for one year for the use of the Rebo terminal at the port of Ostend for turbine pre-assembly for Rentel, the fifth Belgian offshore windfarm. At the Rebo terminal the different elements of the turbines will be assembled. Then they are to be loaded on an installation vessel and installed on monopile foundations in the sea. 

The supply and pre-assembly of the 42 turbines will start early this year and take about one year. The Rentel offshore wind power plant is located some 40 kilometers off the Belgian North Sea Coast and will be able to provide clean power for approximately 300,000 households in Belgium.
