EEW SPC and Jan de Nul have signed a contract for the production of 20 monopile foundations for the Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind farm in Taiwan. 

EEW SPC will start executing the contract in October 2018 at its facilities in Rostock, Germany.

“Formosa 1 is our first offshore wind project in Asia. As well as Europe, the Asian and American markets will also be in our focus in the future. We are very grateful to Jan de Nul for their renewed confidence towards us and we are fully committed for this contract to contribute to the complete success of the whole project,” said Michael Hof, COO/Managing Director of EEW SPC.

“We have worked with EEW SPC for the installation of 51 monopile foundations on the Nobelwind project in Belgium in 2016/2017 and we are delighted to be able to continue this fruitful collaboration for our first offshore wind project in Asia,” said Peter De Pooter, Manager Offshore Renewables of Jan De Nul Group.

Jan De Nul won a contract for the design, procurement and installation of the wind turbine foundations for the project in May.

The 120MW wind farm, due to be completed in the second half of 2019, will comprise 20 Siemens Gamesa 6MW wind turbines and is the first commercial offshore wind farm to be built in Taiwan.

Formosa 1 is a joint venture between Ørsted (35% ownership), Taiwanese developer Swancor Renewable (15%), and Macquarie Capital (50%).
