Jumbo moves for Formosa 1

Jumbo has transported 20 transition pieces for Taiwan’s Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind farm on behalf of Jan De Nul Group and Multi Marine Chartering.

 

With a height of 30 m, diameter of 7.8 m and a weight of 462 tonnes each, Jumbo said that the units were the tallest and heaviest transition pieces it has ever transported.

They were shipped from Laem Chabang, Thailand to Taichung across three shipments using the shipping line’s heavy lift ship Jumbo Kinetic.

In advance of the shipments, Jumbo organised the fabrication of 12 grillages. These were installed on the ship’s deck and were used to support the transition pieces during transit.
