Jan De Nul Adds Private 5G to Northwester 2
nCentric has won a contract by Jan De Nul to deliver a wireless communication system for the Northwester 2 offshore wind farm in Belgium.
nCentric will provide a solution with its Mesh technology in combination with private 5G on four of Jan De Nul’s installation vessels during the offshore installation works at the 219MW wind farm.
Under the EPCI contract, Jan De Nul is responsible for the design, construction and installation of foundations, as well as the transport and installation of cables and turbines.
The Northwester 2 wind farm will comprise 23 MHI Vestas V164-9.5MW turbines, making it the first wind farm to feature this turbine model.
Jan De Nul’s jack-up vessel Vole au vent recently installed the first out of the 23 monopile foundations at the project site 48km off the coast of Belgium. Full commissioning is slated for next year.
