New cable contract to bring wind power ashore in Taiwan

Posted on July 8, 2024

We signed a preferred supplier agreement with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) for the installation of about 90km of subsea high-voltage export cables. Those cables will bring wind energy generated at the Fengmiao I wind farm ashore. Fengmiao I is the eighth wind farm in Taiwan where we are contributing to. Worldwide, we’ve participated in the construction of over 60 offshore wind farms.

Fengmiao I has a capacity of 500MW, providing power for about half a million households, and is part of the larger Fengmiao wind project. This is located 35km off the coast of Taichung and has a total capacity of 1,800MW. Jan De Nul Group will connect the offshore substation of Fengmiao I to the onshore grid of Taiwan via two AC high-voltage cables. To do so, we will deploy our cable-laying vessel Willem de Vlamingh. We will be responsible for transport and installation of the cables, including the protection of crossings with other cables. The cables have a length of 45km and 44km respectively and weigh more than eight thousand tonnes altogether.

“The Fengmiao wind farm brings us another step closer to a world driven by renewable energy. Jan De Nul Group is a big believer in the energy transition and has the knowledge, skills and equipment to make that transition a reality. The two new XL cable-laying vessels we recently ordered prove that we are going all-out for green electricity.”
