Jan De Nul installed Formosa 2 export cablesJan De Nul Group’s Cable Laying Vessel Willem de Vlamingh has installed the four export cables with a total length of 34 km on the 376MW Formosa 2 offshore wind farm in Taiwan.
 
Thanks to her shallow draft design, the Willem de Vlamingh was able to position itself close to the beach thereby limiting the shore pull distance to around 1,250 metres. At the beach landing, the cables have been pulled through four HDD ducts into the transition joint bays. The Willem de Vlamingh also acted as Trenching Support Vessel which, together with TSHD Niña and a Starfish outfitted with an in-house designed jet-skid tool, in the meantime also completed the export cable burial works. For the Formosa 2 project, Jan De Nul Group is responsible for the foundation design, fabrication and installation, as well as for the design, supply and installation of the subsea cables.
