The Netherlands' largest offshore wind farm is currently under construction off the coast of Zeeland. A total of 173 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 1.5 gigawatts of green energy will be installed in the region.
A year ago, on June 30th 2020, the project “Trianel Windpark Borkum 2” (TWB 2) was successfully delivered. This ambitious wind farm located in the North Sea required 3 years of project development and 2 years of construction time. The 32 rotors operating nowadays generate an output of 200 megawatts which supplies 130.000 households with renewable energy.
TWB 2 is the result of Omexom absolute passion for the offshore renewables sector.
The installation work for the first turbine started in July 2019.
By mid of 2020 all 32 turbines have been handed over to the operations department.
In Scotland, Omexom has been awarded the contract by SSEN Transmission to build the world's first 400kV green gas substation (G3) at Kintore. The project is part of the client's plans to upgrade its network in the east of Scotland from 275kV to 400kV and to facilitate increased renewable energy generation in the region.
With good effect, Omexom finished the delivery of rectifier substations for the Lund tramway in Sweden. To meet the challenges in the project, for example busy roads, footpaths or cycle paths, and avoid disturbing Lund citizens, Omexom had to work on a new solution to carry out the project.
Traditional construction would have involved extensive work with deliveries of building materials and electrical equipment that would have traveled through the streets. The delivered materials would have covered areas of the road where the substations would be located. This traffic would also have interfered with other simultaneous works.
Birds often collide with high-voltage overhead lines because they have not seen them earlier. In order to make it easier for birds to see them and to reduce the number of collisions, Omexom in Belgium has installed bird markers on behalf of Elia – the Belgian high-voltage network operator – on the overhead line along the R4 road in Evergem, in the Ghent Canal Zone.
Omexom in Norway will build the largest bus depot for electric buses.
On the 1st of October, the new bus terminal for electric buses in Nepåkeren in Bodø (Northern Norway) will be put into operation.
The construction of the new bus terminal is highly significant for the electrification of public transport in the Bodø region.
In a few years, it will be forbidden to use creosote-impregnated wooden poles, but the Omexom teams in Norway have already taken the consequences and installed new environmentally friendly poles made of composite wood and natural wood in encapsulated hard plastic.
In March, Omexom in Brazil delivered for energisation a transmission line that is part of one of the largest wind power projects in the world: the Rio do Vento wind farm complex, for the customer Casa dos Ventos, one of the pioneers and largest developers of wind power projects in Brazil.
In the beginning of February, Omexom commissioned Unit 5 of the Isamu Ikeda SHP plant, owned by Enel Green Power. This delivery represents the 44th and last of the production units that were part of Enel Green Power's project for automating Hydropower Plants.
