Atlantique Offshore Energy has been selected by Ørsted to execute the full Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning of the Electrical Offshore Substation (topside and modular support frame) required for the Gode Wind 3 Offshore Windfarm, to be installed in 2023 in the German North Sea.
The 242 MW substation to be designed and fabricated in Saint-Nazaire (France) will collect and export the power generated by the offshore wind turbines through dedicated submarine cables, while remotely controlling and monitoring the operation of the offshore windfarm.
Subject to Ørsted’s final investment decision, this contract is an important sign of credit of the global leader in the offshore wind industry for Atlantique Offshore Energy teams, following the successful execution of Westermost Rough Electrical Offshore Substation back in 2014. It also demonstrates the capacity of the company to carry-out turn-key projects, as it is the first Electrical Offshore Substation Ørsted entrusts under a full EPC scheme.
With the on-going execution of the first substations to be installed in France, this signature reinforces the position of our company on this competitive market. Thanks to this announcement, engineering studies can start to secure the installation of the substation currently foreseen in 2023.
“Following our recent achievements, we are very happy and proud to welcome back a customer like Ørsted, the worldwide leader of our industry, and to execute for them their first complete EPC project for an Electrical Offshore Substation,” says Frederic Grizaud, Director of Atlantique Offshore Energy.
