Belgian offshore platform

The Belgian Offshore Platform (BOP) is the association of investors and owners of wind farms in the Belgian part of the North Sea. The BOP was created in 2011 to advocate for the development of wind energy in the Belgian part of the North Sea. Offshore wind power currently has 1,186 MW installed capacity and accounts for 5% of Belgium's total electricity demand. It will reach an installed capacity of 2,262 MW and will represent 10% of the electricity demand by 2020, an average of 8 TWh of electricity per year. After 2020, offshore wind capacity will be doubled to 20% of the total electricity demand.


With 1186 MW of capacity already generated by installed turbines, the Belgian offshore wind sector makes a significant and guaranteed contribution towards security of supply.

International & export

The experience gained during the realization of the first offshore wind parks in Belgium has made it possible for many companies to develop innovative techniques and export them abroad.

Sustainable enterprise

Offshore wind energy is an indispensible element in the Belgian climate plan: without the large wind turbines off our North Sea coast, it will be impossible for Belgium to reach its European targets.
