September 3 (Renewables Now) - The 309-MW Rentel offshore wind farm in the Belgian North Sea has completed installation of its 42 turbines, the project company tweeted on Saturday.

The wind farm consists of turbines with individual capacity of 7.35 MW, provided by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE). Installation of the machines started in May with DEME's installation vessel Sea Installer loading the first turbine components at the port of Ostend.

A2Sea, which last year was acquired by GeoSea, a unit of DEME, said today that the last blade was put in place over the weekend by Sea Installer.

The project, developed by the Otary Group, reached financial close in October 2016.
