Jan de Nul Group signs contract for constructing Northwester 2, the seventh wind farm off the Belgian coast.
Jan de Nul enters for the third time into a partnership with wind farm developer Parkwind, a branch establishment of Colruyt.
Jan de Nul will be responsible for the design, construction and installation of 23 foundations, the transportation and installation of the cables and the transportation and installation of the wind turbines on top of the foundations.
The Northwester 2 wind farm is located 48 kilometres off the coast and will have the largest and most powerful wind turbines currently available on the market: the V164-9.5MW, with a rotor diameter of 164 metres.
Jan de Nul Group will kick off the works in June 2019. It is an EPCI-contract, in which the company will design the foundations and will be responsible for the purchase and installation of the foundations and for installing the cables and wind turbines.
