Belgium has officially started building their massive offshore wind farm that’s expected to be operational by the end of next year. The Norther project, valued at over $1.4 billion USD, will have a capacity of 370 megawatts when fully completed. It’ll spread out with 44 wind turbines in total, and it’s expected to satisfy 10 percent of Belgium’s needs by 2025.

Norther will be Belgium’s biggest offshore wind farm. Elicio, a renewable energy producer under Nethys, holds a 50 percent stake in the project. Eneco from the Netherlands and Diamond Generating Europe (which is under the Mitsubishi Corporation) each hold a 25 percent stake.
