Wind energy – France
The jacket foundation for the offshore wind farm’s offshore substation, built at the Piomboni Yard in Ravenna, is ready to be transported from Italy to France early June.
This news was announced on the LinkedIn page of the Rosetti Marino Group of Companies.
Highlight of the loadout is that the jacket, 50 metres tall and weighing 1,200 tonnes, has been loaded onto a barge in a vertical position. This will speed up installation activities.
The Italian company was subcontracted to manufacture the foundation after a consortium of Atlantique Offshore Energy, GE Grid Solutions and Société de Dragage International (SDI), part of DEME Group, won the EPCI contract for the Saint-Nazaire electrical offshore substation in June 2019.
DEME Offshore installed the four pin piles for the jacket foundation already in April. The installation was done in record time despite the piles having to be drilled into rock.
