Atlantique Offshore Energy Scores Another Substation Contract

France’s Atlantique Offshore Energy has been selected to execute the full engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning (EPCI) of an electrical offshore substation for an unidentified offshore wind project.

Selected by ”a major power company”, Atlantique Offshore Energy, Chantiers de l’Atlantique’s business unit dedicated to marine energy, will deliver the 2,000-ton topside and its foundation in 2025.

The substation will collect and export the power generated by offshore wind turbines through high voltage submarine cables, while remotely controlling and monitoring the operation of an offshore wind farm.

With the completion of three substations in Northern Europe in the recent years, the ongoing execution of the first three substations to be installed in France and of another project for Ørsted, this contract reinforces the position of Atlantique Offshore Energy on this competitive market, the Saint-Nazaire-based company said.
