Jan De Nul Group to build new wind power plant

Jan De Nul secures first offshore wind contract with Nobelwind for its newly acquired jack-up heavy lift vessel Vidar.


It concerns the engineering, procurement, construction and installation 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 wind turbine generators. The wind power plant will be constructed next to the Belwind wind power plant, around the Bligh Bank sand bank in the Belgian North Sea and has selected Ostend as Marshalling Harbour.

The new Belgian offshore wind power plant Nobelwind will be installed 46km off the coast at Zeebrugge. It will consist of 50 Vestas wind turbines of 3.3 MW each, 165 MW in total. The power plant will be connected to the Belgian power grid through an export cable previously installed by Jan De Nul in 2013 and will provide green power to 197,000 families.
