Jan De Nul Wraps Up Formosa 1 Phase 2 Export Cables Installation

Jan De Nul’s cable laying vessel Willem de Vlamingh has completed installation of the three export cables on the 120MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 wind farm in Taiwan.

As part of Jan De Nul’s EPCI contract for building of the overall Balance of Plant, the company mobilized its cable laying vessel to install the 17 inter array and 3 export cables.

At the beach landing, the cables have been pulled through three HDD ducts into the transition joint bays.

The Willem de Vlamingh is also acting as trenching support vessel for the jet-trenching of both the export as well as the inter array cables.

For the installation of the export cables, Jan De Nul relied on its local supply chain network for the performance of the beach pull assistance works including installation of the HDD ducts, dive support and supply and operation of the support vessels.

The Formosa 1 offshore wind farm is located around six kilometers off the west coast of the Miaoli district in the Taiwan Strait, with water depths ranging between 15 and 30 meters.

The original demonstrator project, comprising two wind turbines with a total capacity of 8MW, is currently being extended. This second phase will add 20 offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 120MW to Formosa 1’s current 8MW capacity.

Formosa 1 will be the first commercial-scale offshore wind farm in Taiwan before 2020.

The wind farm is owned by Formosa I Wind Power, a partnership of Orsted (35%), JERA (32.5%), Macquarie Capital (25%) and Swancor Holding (7.5%).
