Jan De Nul has signed a contract to build the Northwester 2 offshore windfarm in Belgium.

The deal to construct the windfarm, which will be the seventh built off the Belgian coast, marks the third time Parkwind, part of Colruyt group, has turned to Jan De Nul.

Jan De Nul will be responsible for the design, construction and installation of 23 foundations, and transporting and installing the cables and turbines for the project.

Northwester 2 is 48 km off the coast of Belgium and will use the largest and most powerful wind turbines currently available on the market, MHI Vestas Offshore Windís V164-9.5MW, which has a rotor diameter of 164 m.

Jan De Nul Group will start work on Northwester 2 in June 2019, with Northwester 2 due to be fully operational by 2020.
