Wind energy – Saint-Nazaire
DEME Offshore’s installation vessel Innovation continues to make progress drilling the XL foundations at Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm in a rocky seabed.
The drilling work for the monopiles is performed by the 350-tonne Offshore Foundation Drill, jointly developed by DEME Offshore and Herrenknecht.
Saint-Nazaire highlights many aspects of innovative technology and close partnerships developed to make this complex project possible.
In addition to the giant drill, DEME Offshore designed the Modiga, together with TMS Technical & Maritime Services, which encapsulates the drilling and installation operations and shields them from the adverse Atlantic marine conditions.
