Wind Energy – Saint-Nazaire
Louis Dreyfus TravOcean (LDTVO) reports that it has installed all 80 inter-array cables at the 480 MW Saint-Nazaire, France’s first commercial-scale offshore wind farm.
Prysmian was responsible for cable manufacturing, while LDTVO was in charge of transporting the inter-array cables to the Montoir-de-Bretagne logistics base, storing them, and installing them between the wind turbines.
The cable installation started in late August 2021 and was carried out in two campaigns.
The second campaign was carried out by the cable-laying vessel Olympic Triton, accompanied by the support ship Wind of Pride, and the personnel transfer ship HST Sofia.
