Wind turbines installation to start at Eoliennes Flottantes du Golfe du Lion wind farm in France

Maersk Supply Service has been contracted by Ocean Winds and Banque des Territoires (groupe Caisse des Dépôts) to transport and install three 10 MW wind turbines at the Eoliennes Flottantes du Golfe du Lion (EFGL) floating wind farm in France.

Maersk Supply Service’s scope of work was awarded by EPCI contractor Eiffage Métal. It includes the engineering, transport, delivery to the construction site, and offshore installation of the floating wind turbines. This is as well as the procurement and installation of the mooring systems. Principle Power’s third-generation semi-submersible WindFloat floating foundations will support the three wind turbines.

Eoliennes Flottantes du Golfe du Lion wind farm construction

Euroports will offer port services during the construction of the wind farm at the port of Port-La Nouvelle. The 30 MW floating wind farm entered the construction phase after signing all financing contracts. It is located off the coast of Leucate-Le Barcarès in the French Mediterranean Sea.

The wind farm project’s developers made the final investment decision for the EFGL floating offshore wind farm early this year. Thus, it allowed them to sign contracts with the project’s main industrial and financial partners. Consequently, it led to the beginning of the project’s actual implementation phase.

Global Maritime was awarded a contract by the project’s developers a few months ago. They will provide Marine Warranty Survey (MWS) services throughout the construction phase. The project will also include foundations, wind turbines, and inter-array and export cables.
