The German utility said the
last of 18 6.15MW REpower turbines needed to complete the third and final phase
went in yesterday.
Thornton Bank, 30km off the
Belgian coast, is being developed by the C-Power consortium at a total project
cost of €1.3bn ($1.7bn).
RWE is the biggest
shareholder in the project. Other partners include EDF Energies Nouvelles
and Belgian offshore specialist DEME.
The first 30MW “pilot” phase,
comprising six REpower 5MW turbines, has been operational since 2009. Both the
second and third phases use the 6.15MW REpower turbines.
