BOURBON to Install Mooring for Floating Wind Turbine

April 28, 2017

French offshore marine services company BOURBON said it has been awarded a contract for the mooring installation of the first floating wind turbine in France at the experimental test site of SEM-REV managed by Ecole Centrale de Nantes (ECN), in the context of European project FLOATGEN.

 
The mooring installation will take place during summer 2017 based on a method jointly established by BOURBON and Ideol’s engineering teams in collaboration with the Ecole Centrale de Nantes. The wind turbine will be installed at the SEM-REV site near Le Croisic, France, by the end of the year. BOURBON’s Subsea Services team will be responsible for the project management, mooring installation and engineering. An anchor handling tug supply vessel (AHTS) and remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV) will be used for the pre-tensioning of the mooring system. 
 
“This project demonstrates BOURBON teams’ commitment to offer integrated solutions in all offshore and subsea marine services areas and work towards the development of tomorrow’s energy resources,” said Patrick Belenfant, BOURBON’s Senior VP Subsea Services.
