Belgium an offshore wind power

Despite a coastline measuring only 65km, Belgium stands among the frontrunners in offshore wind, with the first phase of C-Power’s 325MW Thornton Bank offshore wind farm (30MW Thornton Bank 1 ) commissioned in 2009. Now with 2,262MW online in the North Sea, Belgium is number four in Europe behind the UK, Germany and the Netherlands for offshore capacity.

Belgium has become an offshore wind power, in part, by ensuring all involved parties are on board early on in the planning process. From environmental groups to the navy and the shipping industry,

says Ivan Komusanac, an analyst for markets and technology at WindEurope.
