Jan De Nul scores offshore wind contract in Taiwan

Belgian marine engineering specialist Jan De Nul has signed an offshore wind contract in Taiwan for the design, procurement and installation of the wind turbine foundations for the second phase of Formosa 1 Offshore Wind Farm, owned by Formosa Wind Power.

The second phase of the wind farm will add 20 offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 120MW to Formosa 1’s current 8MW capacity. The wind farm will be the first commercial-scale offshore wind farm in Taiwan.

The scope of the contract also includes scour protection and cable installation.

“We are happy to be part of this new turn in Taiwan’s power generation strategy. Another groundbreaking presence of Jan De Nul in Asia,” said Peter De Pooter, manager of offshore renewables at Jan De Nul Group.
