Elia awards EPCI contract for world’s first energy island to DEME and Jan De Nul
- DEME Group and Jan De Nul Group, two global players in offshore construction, together form the joint venture TM EDISON.
- The Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Installation (EPCI) contract covers the further design and the construction of the Princess Elisabeth Island in the Belgian part of the North Sea. The contracts for the high-voltage infrastructure will be awarded at a later stage.
- The artificial island (45 km from the coast) will form a crucial link in our energy supply. It will open up the future Princess Elisabeth wind zone (3.5 GW) and connect our country to Great Britain and Denmark via additional interconnectors (Nautilus and TritonLink projects).
