EDF Renewables is developing the floating offshore wind Provence Grand Large project off Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, Franc. Schmidbauer has developed a concept for the installation of the 3 floating wind turbines as well as the handling of the components in the harbour before the turbines are brought out to sea.
Siemens Gamesa will supply and maintain 8.4MW wind turbines and SBM Offshore provides the design, manufacture, and installation of the floating structures. The three wind turbines will be installed in the Faraman area, 17 km from Napoléon beach in the town of Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, Framce. The project will be connected to the grid by RTE via a 19 km submarine cable and a 9 km underground cable. The Schmidbauer engineering team has been working with Siemens Gamesa and will provide the equipment for the harbor logistics in Spring of 2022. The company will provide a LR 11350 crawler crane, a CC 2400-1 crawler crane, 130-t auxiliary cranes, and 48-axels SPMT.
