Bourbon Wins Turnkey Contract for Installation 25 MW WindFloat Atlantic Floating Offshore Windfarm

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/22/2018, Location: Europe

Bourbon Subsea Services has been selected by Windplus to install 3 floating wind turbines of 8.3 MW, 20 km off Viana do Castelo, Portuguese coast. These turbines, with a total capacity of 25 MW, are the most powerful in the floating offshore wind industry. The project includes project management, engineering and the procurement of the complete mooring system (supplied by Vryhof).

The mooring systems with three sets of three mooring lines will be pre-laid in the first phase. The wind turbines will be then towed to the offshore site and hooked up in a second phase, which will also include the installation and hook up of the inter-array electrical cables. BOURBON will provide a variety of marine assets required for the different phases of the operations, including AHTS, tugs and ROVs.

With strong experience in mooring installation of floating wind turbines, the Bourbon Subsea Services project team will work closely with WindPlus, Vryhof and Principle Power, designer of the floating foundations, to ensure the successful delivery of this project.

“After having installed the prototype in 2011, we are very pleased to have now been chosen to support this significant European commercial floating wind farm project. The opportunity permits BOURBON to reaffirm its commitment to contributing to the growth of the Renewable Energy industry and demonstrate its unique expert capability in delivering technologically innovative turnkey services to demanding clients” commented Patrick Belenfant, Bourbon Subsea Services’ CEO.
