Project Details for Belwind Alstom Haliade Demonstration
General Information Name Belwind Alstom Haliade Demonstration correct
Other names correct
Country name Belgium correct
Region Vlaanderen correct
Comments The turbine was installed within the extent of Belwind 2's location. It was the largest offshore wind turbine installed in sea waters at the time and had a 15% better yield than previous existing offshore wind turbines. This increased efficiency could supply power to the equivalent of around 5,000 households. correct
