Posted by Michelle Howard

Jumbo reports completion of a shipment of the "heaviest, tallest and the largest diameter "Transition Pieces (TP's) it has ever transported.

The TP's were shipped for Jan De Nul Group in cooperation with brokers Multi Marine Chartering B.V. from Laem Chabang to Taichung, where they will form part of Taiwan's Formosa 1 Phase 2 Offshore Wind Farm (OWF).

The Formosa 1 OWF will have a total capacity of 128MW once built and commissioned. Phase 1 of Formosa 1 features two Siemens 4MW demonstration turbines, the first ever wind turbines to be installed off Taiwan. The Formosa 1 Phase 2 is owned by Formosa I Wind Power Co. Ltd., a partnership of Ørsted (35%), JERA (32.5%), Macquarie Capital (25%), and Swancor Holding (7.5%).

In advance of the shipments, Jumbo coordinated the fabrication of 12 grillages which act as individual secure holdings on deck for each TP. After installing the grillages onboard the Jumbo Kinetic, the vessel set sail to Laem Chabang to set the project in motion.

The TP's were secured to the grillages on board the Jumbo Kinetic by her specialized team and then moved in 3 shipments from Laem Chabang to Taichung.

In total 20 TP's with a diameter of 7.8 x 30 m high and a weight of 462 tonnes each were shipped.
