Van Oord has completed the installation of 62 jacket foundations at the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm. Ailes Marines, owned by Iberdola, contracted Van Oord for the transport and installation of 62 jacket foundations for the wind turbines (3 pin piles each) and the 4 foundation pin piles for the offshore substation.
Van Oord deployed its offshore installation vessel Aeolus to install the 190 pin piles and teamed up with other industry partners to install the jackets. The Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm is being constructed in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, 16.3 kilometres off the coast of Brittany. Once operational, the wind farm will have a total capacity of 496MW.
