Wind Energy – Fécamp OWF
DEME Offshore has successfully installed the offshore substation of the Fécamp offshore wind farm, deploying the innovative Orion.
The Orion installed the 1,300-tonne jacket and the 2,200-tonne topside, completing the project on schedule on August 11.
Just four months previously, DEME carried out the pre-installation of the offshore substation’s foundations utilising another member of the fleet, the DP2 jack-up vessel Sea Installer.
DEME Offshore’s unique subsea template facilitated a seamless installation, although in challenging environmental and soil conditions.
In August 2021, DEME installed the very first offshore substation in France at the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm, deploying Allseas’ heavy lift vessel Pioneering Spirit.
