MHI Vestas will supply turbines to Belgium

19/02/2016 00:46


MHI Vestas, a joint venture between Vestas and Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, declared on Thursday it would probably provide turbines to Belgium's major wind farm project.

The company, which is now selling the biggest and most powerful wind turbines in the world, stated it had been chosen as a favorite supplier for the 370 megawatt (MW) project in the Belgian North Sea. That amounts to approximately 46 of its V164-8.0 MW turbines. The project is operated by Norther N.V., a 50-50 joint venture between The Netherland's Eneco and Belgium's Elicio. The wind farm would be located around 22 kilometres (14 miles) off the coast of Zeebrugge. With 370 MW of electricity generation, MHI Vestas declared the consumption of 370,000 households would be satisfied. MHI Vestas manufactures wind turbines for the developing offshore market, which is run by Siemens' wind turbine unit. The Danish-Japanese joint venture has been created to contest that domination.
