Meanwhile, the first nacelle for the 309 MW Rentel offshore farm, under development by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, was rolled out of the production facility in Cuxhaven.

The nacelle will stay in in storage at the port until early March, when it will be shipped to the Renewable Energy Base Oostende (REBO) site in Ostend, Belgium.

All offshore wind turbine components for the project, such as nacelles, blades, towers and electrical modules, will be shipped to the REBO site in Ostend where additional assembly activities and load-out on the installation vessel takes place.
