Saipem achieves “important” offshore wind milestone in France and Taiwan
Italian energy services company Saipen said on Friday that it had reached a significant milestone in offshore wind in connection with the Saint-Brieuc project in France and the Formosa 2 project in Taiwan.
In France, Saipem said it had successfully completed the transportation and installation of the jacket and the top of the substation. Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farmDeveloped by Ailes Marines, part of the Iberdrola Group, Brittany, France.
The work was carried out in two stages by the Saipem 7000 semi-submersible crane vessel. Saipem installed a 1630 ton jacket and a 3400 ton substation top.
The electric high voltage AC substation collects the power generated by 62 wind turbines at 66 kV and raises it to 225 kV before being exported by the French transmission network RTE via two export cables. increase. The offshore substation will be connected to the mainland by the first half of 2023. This is the first substation to be installed in Brittany and the second substation to be installed at an offshore wind farm in France.
for Formosa 2 Offshore Wind Farm In Taiwan, Saipem has completed the scope of work for client Jan de Nul, the project’s EPCI contractor. This included the production of 32 jackets for the same number of wind turbine generators. The wind farm is being developed in partnership with McCorley’s green investment group, Swancor Renewable Energy, and JERA, off the coast of Miaoli County on the west coast of Taiwan.
This is the first time for Saipem to manufacture a jacket for the Formosa 2 project. The Karimun Yard in Saipem, Indonesia, which was upgraded for the purpose of developing a wind farm, produced a total weight of about 50,000 tons. The final jacket was loaded and handed over by Jan De Nul for transportation and installation in Taiwan.
“With these additional milestones achieved thanks to the company’s commitment and teamwork, Saipem has helped achieve key steps in these offshore wind projects and confirmed its position in the energy transition,” Saipem said. Told.
