Wind Energy – Electrical Systems
SPIE Oil & Gas Services has been awarded the electrical, instrumentation and telecommunications contracts for two offshore wind farms off the French coast at Fécamp (Seine-Maritime) and Courseulles-sur-Mer (Calvados).
Amongst the services to be provided will be engineering, procurement and supply of equipment, on-site assembly, end-to-end connections and support for offshore commissioning.
Relying on over 40 years’ experience in offshore projects, SPIE Oil & Gas Services is continuing its diversification into renewable energies with its participation in two projects located off the French coast of Normandy.
Launched following two state calls for tenders aimed at reaching targets for renewable energy, these offshore wind farms at Fécamp and Courseulles-sur-Mer are just some of the flagship projects which will be delivered over the next few years in the offshore wind sector.
For each of these wind farms, SPIE Oil & Gas Services has been tasked in 2020 and then again in 2021 with ensuring the supply and installation of electrical and data transmission systems, interior and exterior lighting, video surveillance and fire detection systems.
These operations are carried out on the foundations of each wind turbine. SPIE Oil & Gas Services will also ensure the installation of maritime radars.
For these two operations, SPIE Oil & Gas Services will rely on expertise of the teams from the Industrie division of SPIE Industrie & Tertiaire in terms of electrical cabinets and video surveillance systems.
