    French offshore wind energy company awards Navantia-Windar the largest contract in its history

    November 29, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Ocean Winds has signed a capacity reservation agreement with the Navantia-Windar consortium to manufacture 62 jackets for wind turbines to be built in Fene (A Coruña), for its offshore wind farm in Dieppe le Tréport, in northern French waters. According to Navantia, "the project, which will soon materialize in a contract, is the largest project commissioned to Windar-Navantia to date". The French wind farm at Dieppe Le Tréport will have a generating capacity of 496 megawatts, which Navantia estimates will be capable of meeting the electricity demand of some 850,000 people per year as of 2026. The manufacturing works will start at the Fene shipyard in the first quarter of 2023, and will last - according to the Spanish shipyard's estimates - approximately two years (four million working hours).

      Jacket platforms - Navantia reports - are a type of fixed foundation made of steel that serves as a base for wind turbines installed at sea. The jackets for this contract will have four legs, with a weight of around 1,000 tons.

      In addition, Navantia Seanergies will build two substation jackets in Puerto Real (Cádiz), one of them for the electrical substation of this wind farm and the second one for the Îles d'Yeu et Noirmoutier wind farm. Both projects have had capacity reserved in Puerto Real since last June.

      This same project will also provide additional employment for Windar Renovables, which will manufacture 248 piles at its facilities in Avilés.

      Ocean Winds already announced last July the contracting to Navantia-Windar in 2022 of fourteen piles to be built in the new factory in Fene. The piles are a type of fixed foundation, different from the jacket, which consists of a single pillar for each wind turbine.

      Navantia Seanergies is Navantia's brand for the renewable energy business. It was launched in April 2022 with the forecast of signing contracts valued at 500 million euros in its first months and achieving a turnover of more than 350 million euros per year in the medium term.

      Navantia defines itself as a Spanish public company "that is committed to green energies through the Navantia Seanergies brand to drive economic activity and employment in a sustainable sector with high growth potential".
