Bourbon Subsea Services has been selected by Windplus to install three floating wind turbines of 8.3 MW for the WindFloat Atlantic floating offshore wind farm located 20 km off Viana do Castelo, Portugal.

The project includes project management, engineering and the procurement of the complete mooring system, supplied by Vryhof, the company said.

The mooring systems with three sets of three mooring lines will be pre-laid in the first phase. The wind turbines will be then towed to the offshore site and hooked up in a second phase, which will also include the installation and hook up of the inter-array electrical cables.

Bourbon will provide a variety of marine assets required for the different phases of the operations, including AHTS, tugs and ROVs.

After having installed the prototype in 2011, we are very pleased to have now been chosen to support this significant European commercial floating wind farm project. The opportunity permits Bourbon to reaffirm its commitment to contributing to the growth of the Renewable Energy industry and demonstrate its unique expert capability in delivering technologically innovative turnkey services to demanding clients,” said Patrick Belenfant, Bourbon Subsea Services CEO.
