All 3 export cables on Formosa 1 Phase 2 are installedJan De Nul Group’s cable laying vessel Willem de Vlamingh has installed the three export cables on the 120MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 wind farm in Taiwan. As part of Jan De Nul Group’s EPCI contract for building of the overall Balance of Plant, Jan De Nul Group mobilised its Cable Laying Vessel Willem de Vlamingh to install the 17 inter array and 3 export cables.
 
Thanks to its shallow draft design, the Willem de Vlamingh was able to position in water depths of not more than 7 metres, thus limiting the shore pull distance to around 1,750 metres. At the beach landing, the cables have been pulled through three HDD ducts into the transition joint bays. The Willem de Vlamingh is also acting as Trenching Support Vessel for the jet-trenching of both the export as well as the inter array cables. The wind farm is owned by Formosa I Wind Power Co. Ltd., a partnership of Ørsted (35%), JERA (32.5%), Macquarie Capital (25%) and Swancor Holding (7.5%).
