Jan De Nul Group has started transportation of the pin piles for the 376 MW Formosa 2 Offshore Wind Farm. The first batch of 26 pin piles was loaded on the transportation vessel BBC Onyx at EEW SPC’s facilities in South Korea and offloaded in the Formosa 2 marshalling port of Taichung in Taiwan. Jan De Nul Group subcontracted EEW SPC for the supply of all 194 pin piles needed for the Formosa 2 Project. EEW SPC started fabrication in January at three different yards in South Korea and Malaysia. This first pile delivery, one of eight batches in total assigned to the German BBC Chartering, is a significant milestone given the COVID-19 outbreak and its severe impact worldwide. All the pin piles will be stored in Taichung Port until foundation installation commences later this year.

With Taichung Port being the logistics and operations hub for the Formosa 2 offshore wind farm project, Jan De Nul Group continues its partnership with Taiwan International Ports Co Ltd following the successful cooperation on the Formosa 1 Phase 2 project. For the port operations, Jan De Nul Group collaborates with Belgium-headquartered Sarens and a team of Taiwanese suppliers including its long-standing partner Hung Hua Corporation, Ta Jia International Co Ltd, Jin An Logistics International Co Ltd and the Glory Shipping Agency Corporation.

Developed by Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, JERA and Swancor Renewable Energy Company Ltd., and located between four and ten nautical miles off Miaoli County, the 376 MW Formosa 2 OWF will have 47 Siemens 8 MW turbines on jacket foundations in up to 55m water depth.
