Marine contractor Jan De Nul Group said today it has won a foundations-related job on the 120-MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind project in Taiwanese waters.
More specifically, Jan De Nul will design, procure and install the foundations for the wind park off the coast of Chunan Town, Miaoli County, which will consist of 20 SWT-6.0-154 turbines manufactured by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE). The contractor will also take care of scour protection and cable installation, it said.
Construction work should be completed in 2019.
Formosa 1 Phase 2 is owned by Formosa Wind Power Co, which in turn is a partnership between Australia’s Macquarie Group Ltd (ASX:MQG), Denmark’s Ørsted A/S (CPH:ORSTED) and Swancor Renewable Energy Co Ltd. The first phase of the Formosa 1 wind project comprises two 4-MW demonstration turbines.
