Offshore Wind Brings Acta Marine to Saint-Nazaire

Acta Marine has opened an office in Saint-Nazaire, France, off whose coast a 480 MW offshore wind project is being built, for which the company’s vessel Coastal Chariot recently supported the export cable pull-in operations.

Acta Marine said the move to open the office in Saint-Nazaire was in support of the growing offshore wind requirements in France. The local team in the new office will be assisting with marine support requirements.

The Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm, also known as Parc du Banc de Guérande, will comprise 80 GE Haliade 150-6 MW turbines scheduled to be operational in the summer of 2022.

Acta Marine owns and operates various vessels serving the offshore energy sector, including crew transfer vessels, barges, and construction support vessels (CSVs).

In 2018, the company ordered a new walk-to-work (W2W) construction support vessel, optimised for use in the offshore wind industry.
