ALE has completed the unique installation of wind turbine components for France’s first floating wind turbine at Saint Nazaire, France. The installation is part of the pre-commissioning works of FLOATGEN demonstrator, where ALE was contracted by IDEOL to perform the mechanical and electrical completion of a 2MW V80 wind turbine generator onto a floating foundation.

The floating foundation was afloat and berthed at the ‘Quai des Charbonniers’, Saint Nazaire.

Antonio Martin Garcia, Project Manager for ALE, said: “This was a unique job for ALE and the first time we have undertaken such a complex scope of work in this sector. We were able to provide a bespoke solution for this challenging operation and by providing experienced operators with expertise in each discipline, including the installation, ballasting, and lifting, as well as coordination we could ensure smooth project management.

The successful completion of this project showcases our enhanced wind installation capabilities and sets the bar in the next phase of heavy lifting solutions in the renewables market.”
