Industry Database

Jan De Nul Group has successfully completed the installation of a new 83 tonne crane on top of the offshore substation of the 350MW Wikinger Offshore Wind Farm in Germany.

Offshore renewables is a business in which Jan De Nul Group is investing heavily to further strengthen its position in this industry. “In the past decade, we invested a lot in staff and equipment for our offshore activities. More specifically for the installation of offshore wind farms, we acquired two specialized offshore installation vessels: the Vole au Vent in 2015 and the Taillevent this summer,” said Peter De Pooter, Offshore Renewables Manager at Jan De Nul Group. “Meanwhile more expansion plans are being developed within our new-building department. These investments are key for Jan De Nul Group’s growth.”

This OWF, operated by Iberdrola, is connected to the German power grid and supplies green energy to approximately 350,000 homes on the island of Rügen.
