Watch time lapse of this fast-paced substation project!



In reality, it was 16 months from contract signing to completing - still pretty fast!

The Northwester 2 was the third time we (together with Bladt Industries and ISC) delivered a complete substation to the developer Parkwind. In 2013, the Northwind substation was delivered and only three years later, Bligh Bank - both projects as EPCI contracts.  The wind farm is installed about 46 km off the Belgian coast with a total installed capacity of 219 MW.
