Louis Dreyfus Armateurs scores Saint-Nazaire offshore wind contract

Louis Dreyfus Armateurs subsidiary Louis Dreyfus TravOcean has sealed its first French offshore windfarm contract.

The contract is with EDF Renouvelables and Enbridge for the supply, installation and protection of inter-array power cables for the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind project.

“Louis Dreyfus Armateurs Group is confident that this first key contract related to offshore windfarms in France will accelerate the emergence of a French business sector dedicated to Marine Renewable Energy, which the Group has been calling for and will undoubtedly generate employment and increased activity for French companies,” the company said in a statement.

Saint-Nazaire will consist of 80 offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 480 MW.
