Wind Energy – Saint-Brieuc
Ailes Marines announces today the resumption of construction work on the wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc.
The Van Oord vessel Aeolus, which is responsible for installing the piles and foundations of the wind turbines, will be working in the area without interruption in 2022 and 2023.
The wind farm will be delivered at the end of 2023.
From March 2022 to 2023, Van Oord will continue to install the anchor piles for the jackets (3 piles per foundation).
In 2022, Van Oord will also install the first foundations, the components of which are being produced by Navantia-Windar on the Brest polder. Twenty-four foundations are already assembled and stored at the company’s site in Fene, Spain, and twenty-one foundations are currently being assembled.
The first foundations will arrive in the farm area at the beginning of the second half of 2022.
During the spring, Saipem will transport and install the electrical substation on site.
At the same time, Prysmian will begin the installation and burying of the 90 km of three-core submarine cables between the wind turbines.
