Vattenfall has selected Jan De Nul Group to transport and install the wind turbines at the Vesterhav Nord and Vesterhav Syd offshore wind farms in the Danish North Sea.
Under the contract, Jan De Nul will transport and install 41 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines at the two wind farms.
Jan De Nul’s jack-up installation vessel Vole au vent will be mobilised for this installation project.
The contract between Jan De Nul and Vattenfall includes the design, engineering, manufacturing, procurement, and delivery of the sea-fastening.
Jan De Nul will also be responsible for the engineering of the RAMS for the marine operations related to the wind turbine installation.
Jan Van Impe, Area Manager Offshore Renewables Jan De Nul Group, said: ”We are very pleased and honoured with this contract award as it confirms once more that Jan De Nul is a trustworthy and experienced partner in offshore wind. After the successful installation of 72 wind turbines for the 604 MW Kriegers Flak wind farm – the largest in Denmark – we are very pleased with the opportunity to build further on our experience together with Vattenfall.”
Both offshore wind farms are located in the eastern part of the Danish North Sea. The Vesterhav Nord is located west of the coast of Vejlbi, and the Vesterhav Syd is located close to the Sondervig coast.
The two offshore wind farms are expected to be fully operational by the end of 2023.
Bart Willems, Head of Commercial Offshore Wind of Jan De Nul Group, said: ”We are proud to contribute to the energy transition in Europe, more specifically with this ambitious project in Denmark. After the successful commissioning of other Danish wind farms this is another milestone for the production of green electricity for the Danish households. Jan De Nul has the equipment, the experience and the commitment to complete this project successfully.”
