Luxembourg-based maritime contractor Jan De Nul Group will send the newly-acquired offshore construction and cable-lay vessel Connector to Taiwan to work on a contract covering the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of fixed turbine foundations and subsea cables for the Formosa 2 offshore wind farm (OWF).

Sources said that the vessel, just bought from Norway’s Ocean Yield, will sail to Taiwan immediately after concluding an earlier commitment to transport umbilicals from Norway for installation on the giant Lingshui gas field in the South China Sea.
