Belgium: The first offshore substation transition piece and J-tube cage for the 487 MW Seamade offshore wind farm off Belgium are being transported to the Sif terminal in Rotterdam in the Netherlands ahead of installation.

The components, which have a combined weight of approximately 700 tonnes, were loaded on a transportation barge at Smulders yard in Hoboken in Belgium.

Two offshore substations will be installed for the Seamade project, which will be comprised of 58 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines.
