Jan De Nul Group and Hitachi Ltd have been awarded a contract to manufacture and install a total of 21 turbines and customized foundations for the Changhua offshore windfarm on behalf of Taiwan Power Company.

Taiwan Power Company plans to construct the windfarm off the coast of Fangyuan in Changhua County in central western Taiwan, in an area sometimes subject to extreme weather conditions.

The contract includes design, manufacturing and installation of all of the foundations and 5.2 MW turbines for the offshore windfarm and maintenance for a period of five years. The contract has a value of around US$800 million.

Jan De Nul will be responsible for foundation design, fabrication and installation, wind turbine installation, supply and installation of cables offshore and onshore as well as for the upgrading of the electrical substation.

Hitachi will oversee manufacturing, assembly, operation and maintenance and other work related to the turbines.
