At the cutting edge of wind energy
SPIE Belgium has taken charge of the connection to the grid and the complete cabling of four windfarms. These major missions make SPIE a reference on the Belgian renewable energy market.
The first contract, executed on behalf of Siemens Wind Power, consisted of the installation of low-voltage cables for the windfarm at Rieme (Ghent) and their connection at the level of the wind turbines and their transformers. A first mission was rapidly followed by a second for Apiravi, a key player in renewable energy sources in Belgium.
In the Assenede (Eeklo) windfarm, SPIE Belgium connected six wind turbines to the Elia grid.
SPIE Belgium executed a cabling contract in the Meer (Antwerp) windfarm on behalf of Siemens Wind Power and a complete renovation of the windfarm of the Hedersbrug (Bruges) electric power station for Engie via Wind4Flanders.
The knowledge of techniques involving low and high voltage cables, the specific expertise on cabling and the good contacts with the Elia grid manager are the winning assets that make SPIE a reference in the windfarm and renewable energy sector in Belgium.
As the impact of coronavirus on our activities increases and in the face of ever-stricter government measures to halt its spread, SPIE Belgium would like to inform you about the steps it has taken within the organisation.
To this day:
SPIE Belgium has decided not to stop its activities completely, considering that some of these may be essential or even critical to maintaining the activities of companies in critical sectors and essential services that are vital to the smooth running of the country. This is being done, of course, in strict respect of the measures taken by the authorities, and treating the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our suppliers and sub-contractors as a priority.
This unprecedented crisis reminds us of the importance of two of our founding values: responsibility and proximity. By each taking our responsibilities, we will overcome this ordeal.
Drawing strength from our 120 years of experience and from the solidity of the Group to which we belong, we remain confident in the future and in our mutual capacity to adapt and be resilient.
