Heerema Marine Contractors has signed a contract with Jan de Nul, to install 21 jacket foundations (4 legged) for the Changhua project in Taiwan.

The Changhua wind farm Phase 1 project is situated in Taiwanese waters and is a project of the Taiwan Power Company (TPC) and executed by a consortium of Jan de Nul and Hitachi.

The installation will take place 8 km off the coast of Changhua county, at a water depth of 18 to 28 meters.

The installation will be done by Heerema’s fast sailing heavy lift vessel ‘Aegir’.

Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of Heerema Marine Contractors said: “This is our first contract in Taiwan, thus another major milestone. This Changhua project re-emphasizes Heerema’s commitment to operate in wind projects all over the world and strengthen our position in the Asian offshore wind market.”

Van Brouwershaven added: “The willingness to constantly seek cooperation between partners is what drives this team and Heerema as a company. With such a mindset we can jointly achieve anything.”

For Heerema, the offshore phase of this project will start in March 2020 with planned completion in early June 2020.
