Jan De Nul Group reached an important milestone on the Formosa 1 Phase 2 OWF project: all 20 foundation monopiles have left the EEW SPC yard in Germany onboard of two heavy load transport vessels.
Both 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 actual installation operations on site can be kicked off very soon.
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.”
