Bourbon Wins FLOATGEN Mooring Installation Job

French offshore services provider Bourbon 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.

FLOATGEN is a wind turbine with concrete float designed by Ideol and currently under construction at Saint-Nazaire port by Bouygues Travaux Publics.

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 AHTS (anchor handling tug supply) vessel and ROVs 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. We are proud to be part of this project and to support the Centrale Nantes’ team at SEM-REV,” said Patrick Belenfant, Bourbon’s senior VP Subsea Services.
