Belgian offshore platform

The Belgian Offshore Platform (BOP) is a non-profit association of investors and owners of wind farms in the Belgian part of the North Sea. The BOP was founded in 2011 to advocate the development of wind energy in the Belgian waters of the North Sea. Offshore wind energy in the Belgian North Sea amounts today to an installed capacity of 2,262 MW. This can generate an average of 8 TWh of green electricity per year, which is about 10% of the total electricity demand in Belgium. By 2030, this must be tripled to 6 GW, so that every Belgian family can be supplied with North Sea electricity. A further expansion to 8 GW is planned by 2040.

Supply

With a 2,262 MW production capacity , the Belgian offshore wind sector makes a significant and guaranteed contribution towards security of supply.

New cleantech industry

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!
