Bureau Veritas has been awarded project certification for EolMed, an offshore wind farm project developed by Qair and involving Total, Ideol and Vestas Wind Systems.
Located in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Gruissan in the Aude region, EolMed is one of four floating pilot farms under development in France.
It will consist of three wind turbines which will have a total capacity of 30MW and will be able to meet the energy needs of 50,000 people. The wind turbines will be installed on floating foundations more than 18 km from the shore and anchored at an average depth of 60 meters.
Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore division will provide technical expertise and assessment of the floating foundations, their mooring system and the dynamic sections of the inter array cables.
