Successful Deployment of Industry-first Technology Sets New Standard for Installation of XL Foundations into Rock
DEME Offshore, a member of DEME Group, the global civil and maritime engineering solutions provider, on Friday, announced that it has reached its halfway mark installation milestone with the foundation installation of the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm in France. Today’s announcement follows DEME’s August announcement regarding the on-time delivery of the St Nazaire offshore substation.
“Today’s achievement is a testament to the commitment of our entire team and solidifies our reputation as the number one wind farm contractor in the world. Not only are we the first to install a wind farm in rock with industry-first technology, the Saint-Nazaire project is also being carried out in harsh Atlantic conditions. Together with our client Parc éolien en mer de Saint-Nazaire and our partner Eiffage Métal, we will continue our excellent cooperation for the remaining foundations,” says Bart De Poorter, General Manager DEME Offshore.
The complete technological solution is being deployed from DEME Offshore’s installation vessel ‘Innovation’.
