Mott MacDonald Lenders’ Engineer for 1st Belgian offshore windfarm

Mott MacDonald’s role as Lenders’ Engineer to financiers, Dexia on the first Belgian offshore windfarm reached an important stage this month as financial close was achieved on 23 May.

Following on from this agreement, C-Power (a venture established by DEME, Ecotech Finance, EDF Energies Nouvelles, NUHMA and Socofe) will be responsible for the construction and operation of the first phase of the Far Shore Thornton Bank Offshore wind farm to be located 28km off the Belgian coast, near Zeebrugge.

As the six 5M wind turbine generators will power the first wind farm to be built in Belgium, the development is to be treated as a demonstration project by the Belgian authorities. It is anticipated that this initial phase will provide a yearly 120 GWh and offset around 45000 tons of carbon. The value of the whole project, which includes further stages to bring the capacity up to 300MW, is around €153 million.

Simon Luby, Mott MacDonald’s project manager said, “We are absolutely delighted to be involved in this prestigious project. Mott MacDonald is one of the world’s leading energy consultants and it’s great to demonstrate our expertise in this field. Now that financial close has been reached, we’re looking forward to providing construction monitoring services through to completion in 2008.”
