Jan De Nul Group has 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 to which Jan De Nul Group is contributing. Worldwide, Jan De Nul Group has 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, Jan De Nul Group will deploy its cable-laying vessel, Willem de Vlamingh. Jan De Nul Group will be responsible for the 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.
