Jan De Nul: Vole au Vent Getting Ready for Borkum Riffgrund 2 (Expertise Hub VIDEO)


Jan De Nul’s jack-up vessel Vole au vent has been undergoing certain modifications to the layout of the deck prior to heading out to the Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm, Carl Heiremans, Jan De Nul’s Senior Business Development Manager, said.

Vole au vent is expected to start installing monopile foundations on Ørsted’s 450MW wind farm in the German North Sea in early 2018, according to Heiremans.

Looking at the recent developments within the offshore wind industry, Heiremans noted that the recent cost reductions should stimulate a larger interest in the industry and lead to an increase in the number of projects.

These new projects could feature larger, next generation turbines, and that is one of the eventualities Jan De Nul is preparing for, Heiremans said.
