Rentel is a 309 MW offshore wind concession in the Belgian North Sea. Rentel was founded by a consortium of 8 strong Belgian shareholders with a significant track record in offshore wind who joined forces in a strategic Belgian knowledge and competence centre to develop, finance and operate the offshore wind project.

The offshore wind farm Rentel is located approximately 34 km from Zeebrugge and approximately 40 km from Ostend at the Belgian coast. The development headquarter is located in the harbour of Ostend, where also the operational management of the windfarm will be based.


Rentel Windfarm

The Rentel windfarm will consist of 42 Wind Turbines of 7,35 MW and will produce nearly 309 MW at peak, supplying CO2 friendly electricity to approximately 285.000 households. The turbines are connected to the offshore transformer station. The substation is connected by a 220kV submarine cable to the onshore substation of Stevin in Zeebrugge. Rentel will be project financed in 2016 and construction will start early 2017.
