FloatgenThe construction of Ideol’s floating offshore wind sub-structure has been successfully completed by Bouygues TP and was floated-off in Saint-Nazaire’s Forme Joubert lock.

After several months of construction near the Forme Joubert lock, the floating foundation - which will equip France’s first offshore wind turbine - was disengaged from the floating barges on which it was built before being towed back to the quay where the installation and the pre-commissioning of the wind turbine will occur next month. The towing to the SEM-REV test site off Le Croisic will occur later this autumn where the floating system will be connected to the grid and hooked-up to the mooring lines which were successfully pre-installed last month.
