First Pin-Piles for Taiwan Power Company Offshore Windfarm Phase 1 Project Loaded in S. Korea
Following the press release of 1 April 2020, the consortium Jan De Nul-Hitachi today announces that the fabrication of all 84 pin piles for the Taiwan Power Company Offshore Windfarm Phase 1 Project – Demonstration is completed. The first pin piles fabricated in South Korea have been successfully loaded at the yard for transport to Taiwan.
In total, seven batches of pin piles will be loaded at the South Korean yard on flat top barges pulled by ocean-going tugs. During the first load-out, the tug crew remained isolated from all operations near and on shore in order to avoid all risk of contamination with COVID-19.
For this overseas transport, Jan De Nul Group signed a contract with Hunghua Construction Co. Ltd. of Taiwan and Express Offshore Solutions Pte. Ltd. from Singapore.
