Belwind is Parkwind’s first wind energy project and one of Belgium’s first offshore wind farms which celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2020. Located 49 km from shore in the North Sea, Belwind is one of the most distant offshore wind farms in this Belgian development zone.
Fifty-six turbines spread over 17 km² generate enough green energy to power the equivalent of 160,000 homes.
Belwind was one of the worlds largest wind farms at the time. It set the momentum of offshore development in the region and its scale showcased the technology as one of the best routes towards a carbon free future.
Used as a testing ground for several R&D projects including the testing of the largest wind turbine at the time, helped Parkwind and the industry make important steps in advancing offshore wind technologies.
