Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has received an order for 487 MW SeaMade offshore wind power project in Belgium from customer Seamade NV.

The order includes supply and commissioning of 58 units of the SG 8.0-167 DD offshore wind turbine and a 17-year Service agreement.

The project consists of the two combined sites: Seastar, a 252 MW offshore wind power plant with 30 SG 8.0-167 wind turbines and Mermaid, a 235 MW offshore wind power plant with 28 SG 8.0-167 wind turbines.

SeaMade NV is a partnership formed of the Otary RS NV (70%), Engie Electrabel NV (17.5%) and Eneco Wind Belgium SA (12.5%). Offshore construction is to commence in 2019 and be completed in 2020. SGRE will provide the logistics solution along with remote monitoring and diagnostics for the following 17 years in order to ensure their long-term availability and performance.

“We are very pleased that our preferred supplier agreement announced in March 2018 has now become a fully confirmed order with SeaMade NV. Combining the two project areas into one project shows excellent leadership by our customer to drive down the cost of energy from offshore wind through economies of scale,” said Andreas Nauen, CEO of the Offshore Business Unit of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.

The 252 MW SeaMade Seastar site is located 40 km off the Belgian coast, and features water depths up to 38 meters. The 30 SG 8.0-167 DD offshore wind turbines will be installed on monopiles, and supply approximately 260,000 Belgian households with electricity.
