A consortium of DEME and Eiffage Métal has secured an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract for 80 foundations at the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm in France.
The scope of contract includes design, fabrication, and installation of full face drilled monopile foundations. The total value of the contract more than EUR500m ($554m).
Design activities already commenced in order to start the production of the foundations in spring 2020. The first foundations will be installed offshore, in rocky seabed conditions, during spring 2021, with completion being planned in summer 2022.
“The contract highlights our technical expertise in providing innovative solutions for the offshore wind industry. The Saint-Nazaire project will deliver drilled monopiles, a new step forward in the offshore wind industry,” said Jan Vandenbroeck, general manager of French subsidiaries at DEME.
In May, DEME also secured a wind farm contract in Taiwan through its joint venture with CSBC.
