    Pioneers of offshore wind energy from the North Sea coast

    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.

    Lund becomes the fourth city in Sweden with a tramway

    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.

    Bird markers on high-voltage overhead lines in Belgium

    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.
