SUSTAINABLE & INNOVATIVE
Sustainability is an intrinsic part of Jan De Nul’s DNA.
We are a pioneer in building offshore wind farms, we reduce the emissions of our fleet at a record pace, we develop innovative technologies to keep our environment clean and we offer solutions to the increasingly pressing scarcity of land.
Pioneering offshore wind farm works in Taiwan
We are exporting our know-how from Europe to Asia and are building three offshore wind farms off the Taiwan coast: Formosa 1 OWF, Formosa 2 OWF and TPC Changhua OWF. 90 wind turbines in total, an equivalent of 613 MW.
A new generation of ultra-low emission vessels
With the Afonso de Albuquerque, Jan De Nul deploys the very first so-called ULEv dredger. ULEv stands for Ultra-Low Emission vessel. The innovative, sustainable vessel that received its baptism of fire in Quequén, Argentina, heads a whole new generation of low-emission vessels.
Contaminated industrial site is being converted into a lively residential area
Flanders is struggling with many underutilised, and often contaminated sites. We remediate contaminated sites and give these sites a new life.
Behind the scenes: constructing an offshore wind farm
At Jan De Nul we firmly believe in sharing experience and expertise.
We not only encourage communication and interaction between our different divisions, we also set up new business processes promoting cooperation between our many talented employees.
Wind Farm Northwester 2: design to installation
We will build the entire wind farm: from its design to the transportation of the foundations and the installation of the cables and huge wind turbines. An overall project for which several of our departments joined forces.
From the deep blue sea to dark tunnels and vice versa
Throughout the different divisions of Jan De Nul, the ITA programme sets up process to increase efficiency and avoid incidents. The cross-division leadership visits fit perfectly into this programme: two colleagues from two different divisions following one another for a whole day on their respective territory and picking up new and useful experiences.
Joining forces to build the world’s largest installation vessels
If we want to continue playing a leading role on the offshore energy market, we need bigger and more powerful installation vessels. That was the trigger for developing our new vessels, the Voltaire and Les Alizés.
FUTURE-PROOF, FROM CRANE TO CABIN
At Jan De Nul the challenges of our partners become ours.
How do you renovate a tunnel that is used every day by 80,000 cars and, at the same time, avoid major traffic jams? How do you selectively remove plastic from a vulnerable nature reserve? How can you increase the competitiveness of a port without putting it to major expenses? We at Jan De Nul try to fathom the challenges of companies and governments that we work with. Their challenges become ours. We permanently develop new solutions for the issues of today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.
How do you renovate the longest tunnel in Brussels without causing huge traffic jams?
The Leopold II tunnel is the longest and one of the most complex traffic tunnels in Brussels and is in urgent need of a thorough renovation. We will help executing this challenging mega-project. What makes these works unique, is the fact that they will be executed at night only.
Plastic Challenge connects starters and experienced engineers
A cooperation between experts and new employees led to the winning design: the Nul-O-Plastic. This tool will remove millions of plastic particles from the vulnerable nature reserve Galgeschoor.
Dredging in Guayaquil impossible? then they don’t yet know us.
In addition to the capital and maintenance dredging works in the 95-km access channel, we are also installing a state-of-the-art Vessel Traffic Service, a kind of traffic management system for shipping. The project is entirely financed by Jan De Nul.
