A consortium led by Atos has been selected by Ailes Marines, a company 100% owned by Iberdrola, to ensure marine coordination activities and implement communications solutions for its Bay of Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm in France
Atos will implement a full operational marine coordination centre located in Pleudaniel (Côtes-d’Armor, Brittany, France) to coordinate, monitor and document all traffic in and around the construction area, operating 24/7 during the construction stage. This centre will enable Ailes Marines’ teams to register and track vessels and their crew in real time for on-site security, to ensure safety of the offshore operations in the farm (including a ‘Permit to work’ system) or to plan and monitor offshore activities according to the weather forecast. SeaRenergy will provide marine management personnel for this coordination centre.
Atos will also set up a voice communication platform that will allow helicopters, ships, and operational teams working on the offshore farm to communicate between them or with the coordination centre, in and around the wind farm.
Both systems will remain operational after the construction stage and will support Ailes Marines throughout the exploitation phase, when the 62 turbines will be operational.
