North Sea, Belgium
After a successful collaboration on previous offshore wind farm projects, ENGIE Fabricom, Tractebel, Smulders and DEME Offshore joined forces for the full EPCI scope (engineering, procurement, construction, transport, installation and commissioning) of SeaMade’s high voltage substations.
With a 487 MW capacity SeaMade is the largest offshore wind farm in Belgium. SeaMade originates from the merger of two offshore wind projects, previously known as Mermaid (235 MW) and Seastar (252 MW).
Both substations, each weighing 1,200 tons, were successfully installed offshore in March 2020 on top of the transition pieces that were built at our yard in Hoboken.
