Gemini Offshore Wind Park in SWZ Maritime
(With extra pictures) SWZ Maritime's March issue includes a feature on the construction of one of the world's largest offshore wind parks: Gemini.
In total, the offshore wind park will have 150 wind turbines and is set to be fully operational in 2017. Recently, the park supplied its first power to the grid. Gemini is located 85 kilometres from the coast of Groningen, the Netherlands.
