key figures 2020
2020 was ...
This crisis has proved that our company is flexible.
2020 was a leap year. Not only were there 366 days but thanks to COVID-19, we were facing numerous challenges. And this crisis has once again proved that our company is flexible. Our 2020 was characterised by a boost of energy, a healthy dose of perseverance and future-proof solutions.
WE OPT FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Joining forces for clean air
We are fully engaged in working with ULEv vessels. In combination with biofuel, these vessels reduce the emission of fine dust, nitrogen oxides and CO2 to a minimum. Bureau Veritas recognised our efforts with its new certification for the performance of Ultra-Low Emission vessels.
Taking the lead in global energy transition
We continued installing wind turbines in Europe, a known and trusted market. Our offshore division expanded both eastwards and westwards: wind farms have been realised in both the United States of America and Taiwan. Jan De Nul is proud to take the lead in the global energy transition.
Focusing on future-proof and energy efficient solutions
We focus on future-proof and efficient energy management for all our construction works. In addition, making the sometimes heavily polluted areas habitable for people and nature has become a real specialisation.
FOCUS ON ENERGY
Energy-conscious building is a prerequisite for a sustainable society.
From design to realisation, Jan De Nul opts for a sustainable approach in harmony with all resources nature makes available to us: wind, light and water.
From east to west: pioneers in offshore wind energy
The offshore wind industry is on the rise. A development that Jan De Nul is happy to contribute to. We consciously take the lead in the global energy transition.
Sustainability at its best
Every building needs a builder as its father and a designer as its mother. Meet engineer and architect Dr Philippe Samyn M Sc. who has been working with Jan De Nul for 20 years now.
An energy boost for the Albert Square
The roaring sea, the screeching of seagulls, a strong north-westerly wind... The coast makes you dream. And that’s the feeling the project in Knokke-Heist wants to create with the redesigning of the Albert Square.
FOCUS ON PERSEVERANCE
COVID-19 presented us with unprecedented challenges.
The severe restrictions on international passenger traffic meant that companies with employees all over the world had to be creative and, above all, show perseverance!
Jan De Nul adds lustre to top regional port
The expansion of Port of Fujairah aims at optimal capacity and efficiency. Right up Jan De Nul’s street, even in difficult times.
From most polluted place to a biotope for man and nature
For 70 years, the historic Fort Philip in the Port of Antwerp groaned under heavy pollution. But that is coming to an end. Jan De Nul rolls up its sleeves to make the site liveable again.
Putting the Port of Hamburg back on the map
In the Port of Hamburg, Jan De Nul deepened and widened the port access. This project will increase the annual capacity of Hamburg by three million TEU.
FOCUS ON FUTURE-PROOF SOLUTIONS
We go for zero!
Jan De Nul sets course for 2050 with Code Zero as sustainability programme guiding not only our company but also our individual employees towards a sustainable world.
Modular hospital with an eye on the future
In Charleroi, Jan De Nul is building not one, but four buildings with a total area of 154,000 m² - simultaneously. A future-proof modular hospital, centrally located and easily accessible.
Electrical expertise strengthens partner role in energy transition
With the TPC project in Taiwan, the Electrical Department Offshore has proven that Jan De Nul is more than ever the ideal partner for large-scale, integrated offshore wind and cable projects.
BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
We strive every day to create value for the society.
In our CSR Report 2019-20 we report on our progress in terms of sustainable business practices. We highlight the strategy and policies and illustrate how we implemented them within the various divisions and departments.
