Floatgen Construction Progressing According to Schedule

The construction works on Ideol’s Floatgen project have started this month, as announced in June,with the wind turbine and most of the mooring system components now unloaded at the Saint-Nazaire port and the barge on which the construction is taking place already in position at Quai des Charbonniers.

The contract for the supply of the materials for the system was signed on 1 June after Ecole Centrale de Nantes (ECN) invited tenders for the provision of the anchoring system in January 2016.
