Jan De Nul scores third Dogger Bank wind farm job
Jan De Nul Group has secured the final contract with Dogger Bank Wind Farm for the transport and installation of 87 GE Haliade-X 14 MW offshore wind turbines.
Dogger Bank C at up to 200 km off the Yorkshire coast is the third Dogger Bank Wind Farm package awarded to Jan De Nul.
Following the signature of packages A and B, this will bring the total WTGs to be installed to an impressive 277 units.
For the delivery and installation of the 14 MW turbines, Jan De Nul Group will mobilise its offshore jack-up installation vessel Voltaire, turning this project into her first assignment.
The vessel, currently under construction will have a lifting capacity of over 3,000 tonnes and will enter service in 2022, according to Jan De Nul.
The contract is subject to Dogger Bank C reaching financial close in late 2021.
