The company will supply electrical safety personnel throughout the commissioning phase including, but not limited to, SAPs, Control Engineers, SCADA Supervisors and WTG Commissioning Supervisors.

The works will commence next month and will run for two years.

The 500 MW offshore wind farm, located in Seine-Maritime in the Normandy region of northwest France, will consist of 71 Siemens Gamesa SWT-7.0-154 wind turbines installed between 13 and 22 kilometres offshore. 

The project entered construction last year, with commissioning scheduled for 2023, from when it will produce the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 770,000 people.
