France – 27/07/2021 – Atlantique Offshore Energy has extended its gam of services from design and construction of electrical substations to long-term maintenance of such electrical substations. Chantiers de l’Atlantique will ensure preventive maintenance of the three electrical substations of the offshore wind farms of Saint-Nazaire, Fécamp and Calvados (Courseulles-sur-Mer)

Atlantique Offshore Energy, the Marine Energy Business Unit directed by par Frédéric Grizaud of Chantiers de l’Atlantique, directed by par Laurent Castaing, has just signed a contract with the Calvados offshore wind farm project company (EDF Renouvelables – Enbridge – wpd) for the preventive maintenance of the electrical substation of the future wind farm. This contract is in addition to those previously signed for the electrical substations of the Saint-Nazaire (Loire-Atlantique) and Fécamp (Seine Maritime) wind farms. The three substations, with a capacity of 450 to 500 MW, are currently under construction at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique site and will be delivered this year for the one in Saint-Nazaire, in 2022 for the one in Fécamp and in 2023 for the one of Calvados.

These long-term maintenance contracts (five years) are a first for Atlantique Offshore Energy, which will manage the entire service by relying on its own dedicated teams as well as on the expertise of its partners.

« This contract is really good news for our teams, and it will help strengthen the entire French offshore wind industry, which operates in very competitive markets, » said Frédéric Grizaud, Director of Atlantique Offshore Energy. “After our first successes in various European countries, we are proud to add complementary expertise which adds to our know-how and strengthens our visibility, while we have strong ambitions for future projects in France and around the world « .
