A consortium including DEME and Eiffage Métal has been awarded a major EPCI contract for 80 foundations at the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm in France. The scope includes the design, fabrication and installation of the steel foundations. The consortium contract has a total value of more than EUR 500 million.
“We are honoured to be awarded the first major EPCI foundation contract in France and to contribute to the country’s ambitious energy transition targets,” says Jan Vandenbroeck, General Manager French Subsidiaries at DEME. “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.”
“Eiffage is very proud to contribute to the first offshore wind farm in France”, said Antoine Brésolin, General Manager at Eiffage Métal. “Already involved on this market in North Europe, where Eiffage Métal, through its subsidiary Smulders, has gathered lots of references for offshore wind farms in Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom and the Netherlands, our Group will now develop its know-how in French waters. We look forward to working with EDF Renewables and Enbridge to complete this project safely and by integrating its environmental features.”
