The Bay of Saint-Brieuc will have the first large offshore wind energy project on the French Breton coast. A project started in 2021 that has been carried out by Ailes Marines (Iberdrola), through Scottish Power as a specialised part of the Iberdrola Group in renewable energies. This offshore wind farm will have 62 wind turbines of 8 MW each and a maritime substation, with a total capacity of 496 megawatts.
A milestone in the development of offshore wind power whose commissioning is scheduled for the end of 2023, after completing the installation works for the wind turbines.
MSM Offshore, following the G-1162 IALA Recommendations for Wind Farms Beaconing, is participating in the beaconing project of this offshore wind farm to mark the installation works of the jacket-type structures that will support the offshore wind turbines, whose construction and assembly has been carried out by the Spanish companies Navantia–Windar, while the turbines have been developed by Siemens-Gamesa. On the other hand, the transport and installation of the structures have been in charge of Van Oord.
MSM Offshore has supplied a set of MCL360-SP self-contained LED lanterns, which have a light range of 3 NM to mark the installation of the jackets, guaranteeing the safety of navigation of this area.
From MSM Offshore we are very proud to participate in such a large offshore wind project, once again committing renewable energy and maritime safety.
