Jan De Nul lands Formosa 2 contract

Jan De Nul Group has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for Taiwan’s Formosa 2 offshore wind farm.

As part of the EPCI contract, Jan De Nul will be responsible for the foundation design, fabrication and installation. It will also design, supply and install the subsea cables.

Developed by Macquarie Capital and Swancor Renewable Energy Company, the 376 MW Formosa 2 offshore wind farm will feature 47 Siemens turbines installed on jacket foundations at water depths up to 55 m.

Construction works are planned to start in 2020 and the wind farm is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2021.

Peter De Pooter, manager offshore renewables at Jan De Nul Group, said: “Being awarded the Formosa 2 EPCI contract is a very important next step for Jan De Nul Group in the growing Taiwanese offshore wind market. This new contract underlines our commitment to Taiwan and more generally to the Asian region in offshore wind farm and marine construction projects.”
