A consortium consisting of international engineering and operations support services contractor ODE and DORIS Engineering, has been awarded an Owners Engineer contract.
The contract covers the Wind Turbine Generator Installation and the Marine Construction Management for the Éoliennes en mer Dieppe et Le Tréport and the Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier wind farms off the Normandy and Pays-de-la-Loire coasts.
These latest Owners Engineer roles strengthen DORIS Group position as a leading technical service provider in offshore wind and follows on from previously announced Owners Engineer roles in the United States and Taiwan.
The Éoliennes en mer Iles d’Yeu and Noirmoutier consortium brings together Engie, EDP Renewables and Caisse des Dépôts to develop these projects. The Dieppe et Le Tréport offshore wind farm is located 16 km from Dieppe and 15 km from Tréport, in water depth ranging from 5 to 25 meters. The Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier offshore wind farm project is located 11.6 km from the island of Yeu and 16.5 km from Noirmoutier, in water depths varying from 17 to 35 meters. Each project will use 62 of the Adwen 8MW turbines, with a total capacity of 496 MW. The combined projects are expected to produce on average 4000 GWh per year, which represents an annual electricity consumption of approx. 1.6 million people, or roughly equivalent to the population of Marseille.
Construction and installation of Dieppe et Le Tréport and Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier wind farms will begin in 2019 and commissioning is expected in 2021, with the wind farm remaining in operation until 2041.
