Bouygues Travaux Publics, Saipem and Royal Boskalis Westminster in consortium have been awarded a contract by Eoliennes Offshore des Hautes Falaises (EOHF) for the design work, construction and installation scope for 71 concrete gravity-based structures (GBS) as foundation for the Fécamp offshore wind farm in Normandy, France.
The contract is valued at €552m ($617.7m) and the contract value split is 40.5% each for Bouygues and Saipem and 19% for Boskalis.
Bouygues and Saipem are tasked with the design, construction and installation on the seabed of the 71 gravity-based foundations, while Boskalis is tasked with the design and preparation of the seabed rock foundation prior to GBS installation, and the scour protection and ballasting of the structures after installation.
