    Jan De Nul completes Formosa 1 Phase 2 Offshore Wind Farm scope

    After four months of installation activities, Jan De Nul Group announces the completion of an extensive EPCI scope for foundations, power cables and scour protection on the Formosa 1 (Phase 2) Offshore Wind Farm, owned by Formosa 1 Wind Power Co. Ltd., a partnership of Ørsted (35%), JERA (32.5%), Macquarie Capital (25%) and Swancor Holding (7.5%), located in Miaoli County, Taiwan.

    Jan De Nul Group engineered, procured and installed twenty offshore wind turbine foundations consisting of a monopile and transition piece with a grouted connection. Around the monopile foundations 56,000 tonnes of scour protection have been installed. In addition, seventeen inter array cables and three subsea export cables of 33kV were designed, procured, installed, buried, terminated and tested. On land, the connection with the substation was made through 12 km of land power cables.

    In addition to some international service and product providers, Jan De Nul Group engaged and contracted various service and subcontract agreements with local companies in Taiwan. In addition to using the Port of Taichung as a marshalling harbour , Jan De Nul Group utilised the local supply chain for quarried rock production, rock load-out operations, storage and transport of the foundation structures, beach pull assistance works, dive support supply, various support vessels, installation of transition joint bays, HDD ducts, land cables installation, and many other minor services.

    Jan De Nul Group had its first project in Taiwan in 1995. Since 1999 the Group has been at work nonstop offering its services to the offshore oil and gas industry, as well as to the main Taiwanese ports (Taipei, Taichung, Kaoshiung and Mailiao). With two other Offshore Wind Farms currently underway with completion in 2020 and 2021 respectively, Jan De Nul Group continues to play a leading role in Taiwan’s renewable power generation future.
