Electrawinds takes a 50% wholesale mlb jerseys stake
Ex- top man Thenergo made Project Manager

Within the public limited company Norther NV – which won the fourth licensed concession for the construction and operation of an offshore wind energy park in the North Sea – there’s been a major change in the stock ownership structure. Green power company Electrawinds, from Ostend, takes a 50% stake and becomes a partner of Air Energy, which acquired the concession for Norther in October 2009. Daniël Schurmans is appointed Supervisor, with overall authority for the project.

Norther is the fourth offshore wind energy park off the Belgian coast after C-power, Belwind and Eldepasco. The installed power is between 350 and 450 Megawatts. The final size will depend on the best available technology and the results of the soil investigation, which are determinant for the choice of the type of foundation and the type of wind turbine.

Depending on the rate at which distribution network manager Elia strengthens the HV distribution network and the consortium obtains the necessary permits, building work on Norther will commence in 2014. Just like the other operational offshore wind energy parks, the feed hook-up to the national grid will be in Elia’s existing sub-station in Zeebrugge. Once fully operational, the Norther wind energy park will have an annual electricity output of over 1,135 wholesale jerseys GWh, cheap jerseys which is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of over 330,000 families. The total investment has a price tag of over 1.2 billion euros.

Energy concern Eneco, which wholly owns Air Energy, has – with the ‘Princess Amalia’ wind energy park – realized a comparable offshore project near the Dutch town of Ijmuiden. This state-of-the-art park has cheap jerseys been operational since June 2008. The 60 wind turbines, with a combined power rating of 120 MV, lie 23 kilometres off the coast in waters between 19m and 24m deep. Norther is a major strategic project for the group which, by 2015, wants to become the most sustainable energy provider in our country. 43%, already, of the green power it supplies in our country is produced here in Belgium.

After joining the Norther project, Electrawinds participates in the further development of the project. With this move, the Belgian green power producer consolidates its position in the Belgian offshore market.

The changing stock ownership structure within Norther NV is still subject to the Tanks, consent of the competent authorities.
