Jan De Nul, Samsung Wins Huge Cable Project

A joint venture of Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), France Electric Power Corporation (EDF), and Japan Electric Power Corporation has awarded the following consortiums the high voltage direct current (HVDC) cable installation and converter package for the ADNOC-TAQA Lightning Project. Jan De Nul Group and Jan De Nul of Samsung C & T designed and installed two cable clusters totaling approximately 1,000 km, connecting Al Ghallan and Das islands in the Arabian Gulf to the land converter stations in Abu Dhabi’s Al Mirfa and Shuweihat. Responsible for burial and protection. Davi (UAE).

The two cable links are part of Abu Dhabi’s National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA)’s larger offshore transmission system (Lightning Project), connecting Abu Dhabi’s onshore power network to all ADNOC offshore production. To do. Facility.

The package awarded to Jan De Nul and Samsung is currently the first HVDC submarine cable project in the Middle East and MENA region. The consortium has a contract value of $ 3 billion, of which $ 725 million is in the range of Jan De Nul.

Wim Dhont, Jan De Nul’s Offshore Cable Manager, said: “This electrification project is the largest cable installation contract in Jan De Nul’s history. This project includes cable laying, dredging, jet trenching, rock protection, landing preparation, riser platform manufacturing, offshore installation, and more. You will need a lot of the diverse expertise of. “

The first cable cluster connecting Das Island to the coast consists of three 135 kilometers (km) of three 400 kilovolt (kV) submarine cables. The second cluster connecting Algaran Island to the coast involves four 320kV submarine cables, each 125km. A test run of the project is scheduled for 2025.

With this project, ADNOC and TAQA plan to significantly decarbonize ADNOC’s offshore production business. The parties have joined forces to support the United Arab Emirates with the goal of Net Zero.

The Lightning Project will replace existing offshore turbine generators with cleaner, sustainable onshore power sources from Abu Dhabi, such as solar panels and regional nuclear power. This will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from ADNOC’s offshore facilities by more than 30%.
