Jan De Nul Group and the offshore wind project Nobelwind have signed the first offshore wind contract for Jan De Nul’s recently acquired offshore jack-up heavy lift vessel Vidar.
It concerns the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of 51 monopile foundations for 50 wind turbines and for the Offshore High Voltage Substation (OHVS), the supply and installation of scour protection and the installation of 50 Vestas 3.3MW wind turbines. The wind farm will be constructed next to the Belwind wind farm, around the Bligh Bank sand bank in the Belgian North Sea and has selected Ostend (Belgium) as Marshalling Harbour. The power plant will be connected to the Belgian power grid through an export cable previously installed by Jan De Nul in 2013.
