ODE and DORIS Secure French Offshore Wind Contracts
ODE and DORIS Engineering, both part of the DORIS Group, have been awarded Owners Engineer contracts covering the wind turbine generator installation and the marine construction management for the Éoliennes en mer Dieppe et Le Tréport and the Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier wind farms off France.
The Éoliennes en mer Iles d’Yeu and Noirmoutier consortium brings together Engie, EDP Renewables and Caisse des Dépôts to develop these projects.
The 496MW Dieppe et Le Tréport offshore wind farm is located 16km from Dieppe and 15km from Tréport, in water depth ranging from 5 to 25 meters. The 496MW Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier offshore wind farm project is located 11.6km from the island of Yeu and 16.5km from Noirmoutier, in water depths varying from 17 to 35 meters.
Each project will use 62 of the Adwen 8MW turbines.
The contract will see ODE provide engineering and project management support for the wind turbine generator installation and for the marine construction management from ODE’s offices in central London and from the DORIS Group headquarters in Paris.
Construction and installation of Dieppe et Le Tréport and Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier wind farms will begin in 2019 and commissioning is expected in 2021, with the wind farm remaining in operation until 2041.
