    Description
    Objectives

    The project consists of the construction, financing and operation of a 218.5 MW offshore wind farm located 46 km from the Belgium coast.

    The development of offshore wind energy will support EU and national targets for renewable energy generation, and contributes to the security of energy supply and environmental objectives. The project will further contribute to the Bank's transversal priority objectives for energy-sector lending related to renewable energy sources and climate action.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The project is fully consented following an environmental impact assessment process including an appropriate assessment by the competent authority. With suitable mitigation measures in place, the project has no significant negative impact on the integrity of any nature conservation site.

    The bank will verify at the appraisal whether the promoter is subject to EU procurement legislation (Directive 2014/25/EU) on public procurement.

    Disclaimer

    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
