Jumbo’s scope comprises the transportation of 40 monopiles, 120 monopile sections and 40 transition pieces, as well as the offshore installation of 80 TP’s. Preparation and planning works have already begun, with the first transportation commencing in Q4 2019, and installation scheduled to take place in mid-2020. The 640 MW Yunlin offshore wind project is the first large multi megawatt offshore wind project in Taiwan. It will be developed 8km off the Taiwanese west coast and will consist of 80 turbines of the 8MW class provided by Siemens Gamesa.

Jumbo takes on the following scope of work for the Yunlin OWF
Transportation of 40 monopiles, and 120 monopile-sections, from Germany to Taiwan
Transportation of 40 transition pieces from The Netherlands to Taiwan
Offshore installation of 80 transition pieces (incl. grouting) in Taiwan

Mr Michael Kahn, Managing Director, Jumbo said that “This is a proud moment for Jumbo. The Yunlin project is the largest single contract we have been awarded in our 50-year history, and it is particularly special as it allows us to combine the strengths of both our Shipping and Offshore divisions. Our specialised teams, together with our partners, will provide a unique integrated T&I solution - from quayside to seabed - for Yunneng.”

Jumbo will use their K-class and J-class vessels as well as other third-party HLVs and deck carriers for shipping the monopiles, sections and TP’s. They will use their J-class vessels with DP2 capabilities for the installation of the TP’s.
