GE Renewable Energy and Acta Marine today the signed a supply contract for the chartering of a Service Operations Vessel (SOV) for the commissioning activities of 80 Haliade 150-6MW turbines at the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm.
The vessel, Acta Auriga, will start operating in the second quarter of 2022, when the offshore wind turbine installation is set to begin. Departing from the logistical hub operated by GE on the Port of Saint-Nazaire, the vessel will assist in the mechanical completion and commissioning of the 80 Haliade 150-6MW offshore wind turbines located approximatively 12km off the coast.
The SOV will also provide safe accommodation and transportation for the project personnel and will have the capacity to transport goods that are needed offshore.
