DEME’s offshore installation vessel Apollo arrived at the Dieppe le Tréport offshore wind farm project site in France. This marks a significant milestone for the project, as DEME’s crew and project team immediately began preparations for the crucial piling operations for the first of 62 jacket foundations.

The Dieppe le Tréport project represents another large-scale offshore wind farm undertaking for DEME in France, following their completion of innovative projects at Saint-Nazaire and the Iles d’Yeu and Noirmoutier wind farm.

DEME’s scope of work encompasses the transportation and installation of both the pin piles and jackets that will form the foundations for all 62 wind turbines. Additionally, they will handle the transport and installation of the pin piles, jacket, and topside for the offshore substation. The project also includes the execution of an EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation) contract for a total of 120 kilometres of inter-array cables.

Upon completion, the 496 MW Dieppe le Tréport offshore wind farm, developed by Les Éoliennes en Mer Services and owned by OW Ocean Winds (a joint venture by ENGIE and EDPR), Sumitomo Corporation, and Banque des Territoires, is expected to provide clean and renewable energy to nearly 850,000 people.

The arrival of the Apollo and the commencement of piling operations signify the project’s transition into a critical phase of construction. DEME’s expertise and experience in offshore wind farm development position them well for successful project execution.
