Wind Energy – Saint-Nazaire
The jacket for the Saint-Nazaire offshore substation has been successfully installed over the weekend.
The 48 m jacket will be held in place by four foundation piles, installed in April 2021 by DEME Offshore using an in-house designed subsea template and tailor-made drilling equipment.
The expertise gained in this project will be implemented for the installation of the pile foundations for the Fécamp and Courseulles offshore substations.
A consortium of SDI/DEME Offshore, Atlantique Offshore Energy and GE Grid Solutions was awarded the EPCI contract for the Saint-Nazaire substation.
DEME Offshore chartered the heavy-lift construction vessel ‘Pioneering Spirit’ for the transport and installation of the jacket and topside.
In the meantime, DEME’s ‘Innovation’ continues the installation of the XL monopiles deploying the Offshore Foundation Drill jointly developed with Herrenknecht.
