TPC Changhua Phase 1 Foundations All In Place

Jan De Nul has completed the installation of jacket foundations at Taiwan Power Company’s Changhua Phase 1 offshore wind project in Taiwan.

Heerema Marine Contractors’ vessel Aegir, chartered by Jan De Nul, was responsible for installing the 1,100 metric tonne jackets at the site some 10km off the coast of Fangyuan in Changhua County.

Earlier this month, Jan De Nul’s jack-up vessel Taillevent installed the first turbine at the Taiwanese project.

In total, the 109.2 MW wind farm will feature 21 Hitachi 5.2 MW turbines with a downwind rotor mounted.

The consortium of Jan De Nul and Hitachi secured the contract for Changhua Phase 1 back in February 2018.

Jan De Nul is responsible for the design, fabrication, and installation of the foundations and turbines, supply and installation of the onshore and offshore cables, as well as for upgrading the substation.

Hitachi is in charge of manufacturing, assembly, O&M, and other works related to the turbines.
