Jan De Nul Wins Tahkoluoto Wind Farm Contract

Wind power producer Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy has chosen Jan De Nul Group as the main contractor of marine construction for the new offshore wind farm in Pori, Finland.

Jan De Nul NV from Belgium will be responsible for dredging, seabed construction work and the installation of foundations and wind turbines.

The work will take place over the next two summer seasons.

For the first time in Finland, a four-legged jack-up vessel more than 100 meters long will be used in the installation of the wind turbines. Jan De Nul Group has worked on the Baltic Sea before, building an offshore wind farm in Kårehamn, Sweden, in 2013.

“Competence, modern technology and references were the key criteria in the selection of the main contractor for marine construction,” said Arto Huhmarkangas, Project Director, Tahkoluoto Offshore at Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy.

Approximately 14 kilometers of a 30-kilovolt undersea cable will be installed on the seabed.

The Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm project now has five international suppliers involved in the project, Siemens, Technip, ABB, Prysmian and Jan De Nul.

Construction of the wind farm will begin in April.
