DEME Offshore, a Belgian offshore services provider, has secured three contracts for the Dieppe Le Tréport offshore wind farm, a 500MW project to be located off the French coast in the English Channel.
The project owners, including Ocean Winds (a joint venture owned by Engie and EDPR), Sumitomo, and Banque des Territoires, selected DEME Offshore for the contracts, which are worth over €300m ($331.39m). The contracts include the transport and installation of pin piles and jackets for turbine foundations, transportation and installation of pin piles, jacket foundations, and topside for the offshore substation, and engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of 120km of inter-array cables.
The piling operations for the offshore substation’s foundation will begin next year, with the installation of jacket foundations expected in 2025. The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in 2026 and will feature 62 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines, powering 850,000 French homes annually.
