Otary, the major shareholder and operator of the Rentel, Mermaid and Seastar wind farms, announced it is looking for infield and export cable repair specialists.

As part of Otary’s operations and maintenance set-up, contracting capabilities are currently being identified for in situ troubleshooting and repairs (including maintenance activities) on its infield and export cables (and related accessories), based on call-off agreements or service level agreements (SLA) allowing for fast interventions.

The 309 MW Rentel offshore wind farm is 100% owned by Otary and located approximately 34 km offshore. It became operational end 2018 and features 42 Siemens Gamesa
SWT-7.0-154 turbines. It powers around 300,000 households annually

The Mermaid and  Seastar project, collectively known as SeaMade, have been fully operational since end 2020. The 235 MW Mermaid concession is located approximately 50 km offshore and the 252 MW Seastar concession is located approximately 38 km offshore. The two consist of 58 Siemens Gamesa
SG 8.0-167 DD turbines, each with an individual installed capacity of 8.4 MW, mounted on monopile foundations. SeaMade is a joint venture of Otary (70%), Ocean Winds (17.5%), and Eneco (12.5%) and powers around 500,000 households annually.

Eight Belgian companies active in the field of renewable energy form Otary. They include SOCOFE, S.R.I.W. Group, Power at Sea, Z-Kracht, Aspiravi, Green Offshore, Elicio and DEME Group.
