BOW Terminal said that Jan De Nul will take care of the transport and installation of 107 monopile foundations, weighing 1, 500 tonnes each, as well as secondary steel from its yard. 106 of the foundations will be used for wind turbines and one for an offshore substation.

The wind farms are owned and being developed by Danish renewable energy company Ørsted, with construction starting this summer. Full commercial operation is scheduled for early 2025.

Jean Pierre van Lieshout, BOW Terminal’s general manager, said: “We are proud to be carrying out our first project in Eemshaven at the Beatrix harbour. We are convinced that we can bring the project to a successful conclusion together with all parties involved.”
