Jan De Nul wins Taiwanese cable contract

Jan De Nul Group has signed a preferred supplier agreement with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) for the installation of about 90 km of subsea high-voltage export cables. Those cables will bring wind energy generated at the Fengmiao I wind farm ashore. Fengmiao I is the eighth wind farm in Taiwan where Jan De Nul Group is contributing to. Worldwide, the maritime constructor participated in the construction of over 60 offshore wind farms.

Fengmiao I has a capacity of 500 MW, providing power for about half a million households, and is part of the larger Fengmiao wind project. This is located approximately 35 km off the coast of Taichung and has a total capacity of 1800 MW. Jan De Nul Group will connect the offshore substation of Fengmiao I to the onshore grid via two AC high-voltage cables. To do so, it will deploy its cable-laying vessel Willem de Vlamingh. The company is responsible for transport and installation of the cables, including the protection of crossings with other cables. The cables have a length of 45 km and 44 km respectively and weigh more than 8000 t altogether.

“The Fengmiao wind farm brings us another step closer to a world driven by renewable energy. Jan De Nul Group is a big believer in the energy transition and has the knowledge, skills and equipment to make that transition a reality. The two new XL cable-laying vessels we recently ordered prove that we are going all-out for green electricity," Wouter Vermeersch, Manager Offshore Cables at Jan De Nul Group.
