DEME Offshore has installed the first turbine at the SeaMade offshore wind farm in the Belgian North Sea. DEME’s DP2 offshore installation vessel Apollo will now install 58 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines on the monopile foundations. Apollo loaded the first wind turbine components at the Renewable Energy Base Ostend, which is used as the marshalling harbour for the pre-assembly of the 58 turbines. From Ostend, Apollo will transport the tower elements, nacelles and blades, with a total weight of 1,000 tonnes each, for installation at the SeaMade site which is about 45 km off the Belgian coast.

Apollo features an 800-tonne, leg-encircling crane and an unobstructed, spacious 2,000 square meter deck with a load carrying capacity of 15 tonne per square metes

With a 487 MW capacity, SeaMade is the largest offshore wind farm in Belgium. Offshore construction of the SeaMade wind farm started in September 2019, with the last foundation installed in January 2020 and in the meantime connected by the subsea cables.
