The first wind turbine components for the Rentel offshore wind farm have arrived on the REBO Site in Ostend. Two blade sets and six top towers are the first components that have been shipped with the Rotra Mare from Esbjerg to Ostend.
In the coming weeks more components will follow from Aalborg (blades), Esbjerg (blades and towers), Cuxhaven (nacelles) and Vietnam (towers), to create a stock of components of maximum 12 nacelles, 36 tower parts and 36 blades. The main activity on the REBO site will be the pre-assembly of the three tower parts to one complete tower which will be executed on a special 8-pack tower stand which has been built on the load-out quay of the REBO site. The Installation of the 42 Rentel Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy 7.0-154 wind turbines is scheduled to start early May 2018, and will be executed with the Sea-Installer a vessel from the A2Sea group recently acquired by the DEME Group.
