DEME’s DP2 offshore installation vessel Sea Installer is getting ready to carry out works for the Fécamp offshore wind farm in France, the offshore construction company said in a social media update on 4 March.
Sea Installer installed four foundation piles for the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm’s substation in April last year, when DEME said the lessons learnt from this achievement would be implemented for the next installation of the pile foundations for the Fécamp and Courseulles offshore substations.
Rosetti Marino cut the first steel for the jacket foundation that will support the offshore substation (OSS) at the Fécamp offshore wind farm at the beginning of last year, while Chantiers de l’Atlantique kicked off the construction of the topside in September 2020.
The 500 MW Fécamp offshore wind farm will feature 71 wind turbines, all of which will stand on gravity-based foundations, the first of which was completed at the Grand Port Maritime of Le Havre last month.
The 500 MW Fécamp offshore wind farm, being built by EDF Renouvelables, EIH Sarl (a subsidiary of Enbridge) and wpd, will consist of 71 Siemens Gamesa SWT-7.0-154 wind turbines installed more than 13 kilometres off the Normandy coast.
Offshore construction is scheduled to be completed and the wind farm fully commissioned by the end of 2023.
