Jan De Nul Group has signed an agreement with RWE for the long-term chartering of two installation vessels for future offshore wind foundation and turbine construction. The partnership includes the exclusive and long-term charter of the offshore installation vessels Les Alizés and Voltaire.
The charters are supported by a service agreement through which Jan De Nul Group will provide both in-house and market solutions and services, to support and perform installation campaigns for RWE’s offshore wind projects. Les Alizés has been chartered for more than five years and its first project will be the Danish offshore project Thor. Foundation installation works for this 1,000-megawatt wind farm are due to take place in 2025. Voltaire has been chartered to RWE for more than four years, from 2027 onwards. Subject to the project’s final investment decision, Voltaire will install the turbines of RWE’s Hollandse Kust West VII wind farm off the Dutch coast.
