Climate change is one of the biggest challenges humankind is facing.

The last few years, we see ourselves increasingly confronted with extreme weather conditions. This will only increase in the years to come. But there is a way to turn the tide: drastically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, we need to realise an energy transition, in which we shift our dependence on fossil fuels to zero carbon electricity. And we need to do it now!

    Next generation vessels Voltaire and Les Alizés

    Wind turbines will have enormous dimensions and installation heights, and will have increasingly larger foundations. Jan De Nul is investing to offer clients the most efficient installation method. With a crane capacity of more than 3,000 tonnes, our offshore jack-up installation vessel Voltaire can install wind turbines with a height of more than 270 metres and blades of 120 metres long. Our floating installation crane vessel Les Alizés is able to transport and install foundations up to 2,500 tonnes.

  • Terranova

    How a polluted landfill became a solar panel park

    In our pilot project Terranova, we completely redeveloped a polluted and neglected gypsum mountain into one of the largest interconnected solar panel parks in the Benelux. Soon, the site will be equipped with a wind turbine, generating energy for exploring possibilities with green hydrogen production.



But how can we put them into practise? Our awareness programme Code Zero unites all sustainable initiatives into four pillars: Zero Emissions, Zero Accidents, Zero Waste and Zero Breaches. A milestone, rather than a starting point. And only one piece of the puzzle. To make a real difference, we need everyone’s support, from our own employees and clients to suppliers, local communities and governments.
