February 10 (Renewables Now) - The operator 309-MW Rentel offshore complex in the Belgian North Sea has launched a competition call in search of a power off-taker for the wind farm’s output.

According to a notice published in the EU's Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) last week, the company will sign a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with a party that will buy the electricity produced by the power plant, as well as the related guarantees of origin. The PPA is scheduled to become effective on October 1, 2020, and run until the end of June 2036.

Interested parties are invited to take part in the competition by February 24.

The Rentel wind farm consists of 42 Siemens Gamesa turbines of 7.35 MW each, which have been generating power since late 2018. The project was developed by the Otary Group, which is a consortium of eight Belgian companies and comprises DEME Group, Elicio, Aspiravi, Green Offshore, Power@Sea, Socofe, SRIW and Z-Kracht.
