Jan De Nul wraps up offshore installation of Trianel Windpark Borkum II wind turbines in Germany

Jan De Nul Group is proud to announce that it has completed the offshore Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWBII) project in the German North Sea. All 32 Wind Turbine Generators (WTG) have been installed and mechanically completed.

Jan De Nul Group’s Jack-Up Offshore Installation Vessel (JUIV) Taillevent started the WTG installation works in the summer of 2019 but had to leave mid-February 2020 to undertake commitments in Taiwan. The installation works of the remaining WTGs were completed with the JUIV Blue Tern.

Jan De Nul Group and its Subcontractor Global Wind Service subsequently finalized the mechanical completion of the 32 WTGs in order to have them ready for commissioning by TWBII.

About Trianel Windpark Borkum II

Jan De Nul Group was awarded the WTG installation works by Senvion in December 2017, after which the start of the WTG installation works was delayed due to Senvion’s insolvency proceedings. The offshore wind farm Trianel Wind Park Borkum (Phase II) comprises 32 offshore WTG of 6.33 MW each. The scope of Jan De Nul Group included both the offshore installation of the WTGs and the mechanical completion works.

Jan De Nul Group was also in charge of three other German renewables projects: installation of the HVAC export cable for the Offshore Wind Farm Trianel Borkum II; installation of the HVAC export cable for the Offshore Wind Farm Borkum Riffgrund II and installation of 36 monopiles and transition pieces for the Offshore Wind Farm Borkum Riffgrund II.
