Completed projects in 2020

Over the past year, the Aspiravi group has been involved in the construction of the new Seastar and Mermaid offshore wind farms, comprising a total 58 new wind turbines in the North Sea. Together, they form the largest offshore wind farm in the Belgian North Sea, with a 487MW installed capacity, producing green electricity equivalent to the average annual consumption of 485,000 households. This cuts annual CO2-emmissions by 500,000 tonnes.

In 2020, A&U Energie, the power plant based on non-recyclable wood waste, will be completed and fully operational. Its construction was done together with Unilin. Since then, the Wielsbeke site has been producing green electricity equivalent to the annual average consumption of 40,000 households.

PROJECTS
TO BE BUILT
IN 2021/2022

We are once again embarking on many new projects. New Aspiravi wind turbines will be erected in Ardooie, Brecht, Diest, Laarne (one in each), and two new ones in Bekkevoort.

In addition, 13 new wind turbines will be erected in the port of Antwerp, including eight Wind aan de Stroom turbines on the left bank and five Vleemo turbines on the right bank.

In total, Limburg Win(d)t will be providing 16 new wind turbines. Two new ones are to be installed in Ham, while both Diepenbeek and Genk are to receive one each. Genk's new wind turbine is a retrofit of the one that was demolished last year on the Genk Zuid industrial estate. In Lommel, a partial retrofit will take place at the Lommel Kristalpark industrial estate. There, eight existing wind turbines are to be replaced with six new ones, while an additional six are also to be constructed.

OFFSHORE WIND

In the Belgian territorial waters of the North Sea, the government defined an initial zone for the development of wind energy projects in the early 2000s. Within this zone, nine domain concessions have been granted for the construction of an equal number of wind farms. In 2005/2006, the Aspiravi group’s Board of Directors also decided to expand its activities and build offshore wind projects in the Belgian North Sea.

In 2013/2014, the Aspiravi group was involved in the construction of 72 wind turbines for the offshore project Northwind, and in 2018/2019 in the construction of 42 offshore wind turbines for the project Rentel. Both offshore wind farms together produce green power for the average annual consumption of 530,000 households.

The four offshore wind farms in which the Aspiravi group is involved help to cut an annual 1,3 million tonnes of CO2 emissions.

In 2019, SeaMade, of which Aspiravi group is a shareholder, began construction of two new offshore wind farms: Seastar (30 wind turbines) and Mermaid (28 wind turbines). Since last year, both have together produced enough green energy for the average annual consumption of 485,000 households.

ONSHORE WIND ABROAD

The Aspiravi group has been active abroad since 2010/2011. It is always seeking projects with an acceptable level of risk that can be developed together with a local partner.

Aspiravi is currently taking initiatives to develop renewable energy projects in France, Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In each of these countries, the Aspiravi group is investigating how it can contribute to local energy transitions and climate objectives, with a view to developing and implementing concrete projects for the long term.

In 2011/2012, the first two wind farms were developed and constructed abroad on the island of Curaçao, with a third added in 2017. Today, the Aspiravi group operates a total of 15 wind turbines that together produce enough green energy for 53,000 households.

The wind turbines are truly necessary for the island's energy supply.

30% of today's energy
consumption on Curaçao is
produced by wind energy.

ONSHORE WIND IN BELGIUM

Aspiravi NV was a pioneering company in 2002 for the implementation of onshore wind energy projects in Belgium and began with 35 wind turbines, generating 12MW combined. In early 2021, the company was involved in the operation of 188 onshore wind turbines in Belgium, which together have an installed capacity of 441MW and produce green electricity for almost 274,000 households.

In the province of Limburg, Aspiravi NV is active as a shareholder of the companies Limburg win(d)t NV and Lommel win(d)t NV. In early 2021, 43% of the wind turbines in the province of Limburg had been implemented by the Aspiravi group. This equates to 54 wind turbines in total that together produce green electricity for approximately 70,000 Limburg households.

At the port of Antwerp, Aspiravi NV is implementing projects on the right bank as a shareholder of Vleemo NV and on the left bank as a shareholder of Wind aan de Stroom NV. By the end of 2020, 55 wind turbines had already been built at the port of Antwerp, resulting in a reduction of CO2 emissions by over 182,000 tonnes/year.

In 2005, the Aspiravi group's Board of Directors decided, together with Spano (now Unilin), to develop, construct and operate a plant for the incineration of non-recyclable wood waste. A&S Energie in Oostrozebeke produced its first green power in 2010. Thanks to the annual processing of 180,000 tonnes of non-recyclable wood waste, renewable energy is produced for 55,000 households.

In 2016, the Aspiravi group's Board of Directors decided to explore with Unilin the possibility of setting up a second green power plant in Wielsbeke, in addition to a Unilin plant. After extensive research, it was decided at the beginning of 2018 to build this power station. Last year, the plant was finished and production began.


NON-RECYCLABLE WOOD WASTE

The raw material for the new plant is also non-recyclable wood waste that is supplied locally. But A&U Energie also produces green heat (steam) alongside green power (electricity). The green power is partly supplied to Unilin and partly to the grid. The green heat is supplied to the nearby companies Unilin and Agristo. The plant has a thermal capacity of 90MW, through which 20MW of green power and 25MW of green heat is supplied.

Our achievements

WAY THE WIND

Since 2002, the Aspiravi group, which is 100% Belgian, has been implementing onshore wind energy projects in Belgium. In 2005, the group was awarded the franchise for the construction of the 1st offshore wind farm, which was built in 2013/2014. Also in 2005, the Aspiravi group's Board of Directors decided to diversify by building the 1st power station for non-recyclable wood waste, which was implemented in 2010. In 2012, the group finally built its 1st wind energy project abroad. Since the end of 2020, the Aspiravi group has contributed to the production of green energy equivalent to the average annual consumption of almost 1,5 million households.

Over these 19 fascinating years, the Aspiravi group has implemented renewable energy projects that each contribute towards the necessary energy transition and the many climate objectives.

Our plans for the future remain ambitious!
