Wpd and DORIS Engineering Partner Offshore France

Wpd France has signed an agreement with DORIS Engineering to deliver studies for floating offshore wind in French waters.

Under the agreement, DORIS said it will provide strategic expertise in aero-hydrodynamic, mooring, cables, geotechnical and structural issues.

According to the French company, the research and studies will provide wpd with insights in terms of technologies, construction and O&M strategies related to floating offshore wind.

To remind, wpd is part of a consortium developing the 498MW Fécamp and 450MW Courseulles- sur-Mer offshore wind projects in France, selected in the country's Round 1 offshore wind tender in 2012. Both projects are expected to be commissioned by 2021.

Last year, the company also signed an agreement with the Brittany Region to promote the development of floating wind in this French area.
