Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, United States
The first was the 30MW Block Island Wind Farm, commissioned in 2016 at 3 kilometres off the coast of Rhode Island. The Coastal Virginia wind farm contains the very first offshore wind turbines in U.S. Federal Waters.
Ørsted Wind Power North America LLC selected Jan De Nul Group to install a 12MW demonstrator Offshore Wind Farm, 27 miles off the coast of Virginia. The scope for Jan De Nul Group included the transport and installation of both offshore foundations and wind turbines, as well as the procurement and installation of the scour protection.
Jan De Nul’s offshore jack-up installation vessel Vole au vent delivered the installation works and was assisted by the multipurpose vessel Adhémar de Saint Venant to perform the scour protection works.
