Fugro has completed a geotechnical survey campaign at the 480MW Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm in France.
This was the company’s second geotechnical campaign at the site some 12km offshore the Loire-Atlantique. It was carried out by the jack-up platform Excalibur and the Fugro Scout. The first campaign was performed in 2015.
Fugro has now completed the survey and the sampling of the soil in locations where 80 of the wind farm’s turbine foundations are planned to be installed.
The Saint-Nazaire wind farm comprises 80 6MW GE Haliade 150 turbines spread over an area of 78 square kilometres.
The owners and developers of the project are EDF Energies Nouvelles, a subsidiary of the EDF group, and Canada’s Enbridge Inc.
The commissioning of the wind farm is scheduled for 2022.
