GOLF DU LION GETS THE GREEN LIGHT


The Golf du Lion (EFGL) floating offshore wind farm has been granted authorization from the Aude Precture. Fol-lowing the public consultation held in spring 2019, the domain concession and environmental authorisations for the development of the project and for RTE’s transmission system were granted on 6th November. Located 16km off the coast of Leucate and Le Barcares, the project will demonstrate the semi-submersible WindFloat platform from Principle Power, Inc. MHI Vestas also announced that it had been selected as the preferred turbine supplier for EFGL and will deploy three V164-10.0 MW turbines. RTE will start construction of the transmis-sion system during the second half of 2020 and turbine installation is expected in 2022. The Port La Nouvelle in Southern France will be used as the assembly harbour. The 30 MW pilot project is a continuation of the success-ful partnership between EDP Renewables, Engie, and MHI Vestas, who were behind the WindFloat Atlantic project, which is currently being installed in Portugal.

HEEREMA USES FLOATING WIND TURBINE INSTALLATION

Heerema will use the floating method for the construction of Parkwind’s 257 MW Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm, located 20 kilometres northeast of the island of Rugen in the Baltic Sea. Because of the challenging soil conditions at the Arcadis Ost 1 site, Parkwind looked at possible alternatives to traditional installation methodologies. Together with Heerema Marine Contractors and MHI Vestas, the floating installation method was developed. The main advantage of floating installation is that all interaction with the soil can be avoided, reducing the project’s risk compared to traditional jack-up installation and allowing for faster operations, Heerema states. The developed method is based on utilizing a floating installation vessel to assemble the wind turbine components. The vessel will have all turbine components on its deck including a dummy tower. This tower will provide a stable platform onboard the vessel to assemble the nacelle and the blades.
