Belgium’s Jan De Nul Group has reached an important milestone on the Formosa 1 Phase 2 OWF project offshore Taiwan, with all 20 foundation monopiles leaving the EEW SPC yard in Germany.

Both heavy load transport vessels set sail to Taichung port, the marshalling harbour for the OWF project in Taiwan. This transport is an important step in the procurement phase of this project. Now that these substantial components for the OWF construction are mobilized, the installation phase will soon begin

Apart from the overseas procurement and services, Jan De Nul Group has finalized various service and subcontract agreements with local entities in Taiwan. After having appointed Taichung Port as marshalling harbour for the project, Jan De Nul set up its local supply chain, which includes quarry rock production for the foundation scour design, rock load-out operations, storage and transport of the foundation structures, installation of transition joint bays and land cables installation.

Philippe Hutse, Offshore Director at Jan De Nul Group: “Our local integration has been ongoing for years thanks to our various marine activities throughout the past years in the region. In the past months, we have signed several agreements with local suppliers for this project in Taiwan. These engagements fit perfectly in our philosophy of involving the local supply chain as much as possible.”
