Jan De Nul Lands Northwester 2 Deal

Jan De Nul has signed a contract for constructing Northwester 2, the seventh wind farm off the Belgian coast.

The deal marks the third time Jand De Nul has entered 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.

“For the third time, we join forces with Parkwind,” says Peter De Pooter, manager Offshore Renewables with Jan De Nul Group. “Needless to say that we are very pleased with Parkwind’s confidence in our expertise.”

Stan Logghe, project manager of Jan De Nul for Northwester 2, stated: “With this project, we will have the honor of being the first marine engineering company to build the world’s largest offshore wind turbines at sea, a great milestone, not only for us but also for the offshore wind industry.”

The Northwester 2 wind farm is located 48 kilometers off the coast and it is said it will have the largest and most powerful wind turbines currently available on the market: the V164-9.5MW, with a rotor diameter of 164 meters.

Jan De Nul should kick off the works in June 2019. It is an EPCI-contract, in which Jan De Nul will design the foundations and will be responsible for the purchase and installation of the foundations and for installing the cables and wind turbines.
