The wind farm consists of 54 wind turbines,
Within the concession area, two sub-areas are separated by a channel defined around the Interconnector gas conduct and the Concerto South 1 telecommunication cable:
• Sub area A (southwestern part of the concession) consists of 30 turbines
• Sub area B (northeastern part of the concession) consists of 24 turbines
The project was build in 3 phases:
Infield electrical cables to the transformer station connect the wind turbines in strings, and each string to the transformer station situated in the south-eastern corner of sub area A.
The transformer station transforms the capacity from 33.000 volt to 150.000 volt.
Two 150 kV high-voltage cables link the wind farm area to the high voltage grid of Elia onshore in Bredene.
|Water depth||12 to 27,5 m|
|Distance to the coast||27 to 30 km|
|Area||19,84 km² (Area A=10,68 km² + Area B=9,16 km²)|
|Distance between turbines||700 m|
|Total capacity||325,20 MW|
|Annual generation||1.050.000.000 kWh or 1050 GWh
= Enough energy for the annual consumption of 300.000 families
|Avoided CO2 emission|| 415,000 tonnes/year (compared with a recent gas power station)
= the annual CO2 absorption capacity of a forested area of 65,000 ha
= 1/3 of the forests within Flanders
|Wind turbines||Phase 1: 6 x 5 MW each
Phase 2: 30 x 6,15 MW each
Phase 3: 18 x 6,15 MW each
