In a sign of continued momentum for the offshore wind turbine manufacturer, MHI Vestas celebrates the inauguration of Nobelwind offshore wind park in Belgium - its second wind park opening in May 2017.

Exactly one week after executives gathered to open Burbo Bank Extension in the UK, MHI Vestas representatives came to Oostende, Belgium to inaugurate Nobelwind and celebrate the successful deployment of 50 offshore turbines in the park.

MHI Vestas CEO Jens Tommerup said, “Today is an exciting day for MHI Vestas as we celebrate the opening of the Nobelwind offshore wind farm. We are grateful to Parkwind for the opportunity to deploy 50 of our V112-3.3 MW turbines off the coast of Belgium. After another successful collaboration with Parkwind and our supply chain partners, we’re proud to have these 50 turbines providing enough clean energy to power more than 188,000 Belgian homes.”

The turbines, positioned 47 km off the coast of Belgium, will provide enough renewable energy to power more than 188,000 Belgian homes.
MHI Vestas and Parkwind have already successfully collaborated on Belwind (165 MW), Northwind (216 MW), and now Nobelwind (165 MW), installing a combined 546 MW together off the coast of Belgium.
