Correll to deliver bespoke turnkey solution for Courseulles-sur-Mer Offshore Wind Farm
The Correll Group is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a contract from Prysmian Group to provide support for the pull-in and installation of two 225 kV HVAC export cables (each about 17.5 km in length), to the offshore substation platform for the Courseulles-sur-Mer offshore wind farm.
The 448 MW Calvados offshore wind project is comprised of 64 GE Haliade 150-6MW series wind turbines located more than 10km from the Bessin coastline and occupies a total surface area of approximately 45km².
The offshore wind farm is being developed by Éolien Maritime France, a joint venture between EDF Renewables and Enbridge. EMF was awarded the tender by the French Government in 2012, along with the 498MW Fécamp and the 480MW Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farms.
Upon its commissioning, scheduled in 2024, Courseulles-sur-Mer offshore wind farm will generate the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 630,000 people, or over 90% of the Calvados French department’s population.
The three and a half-year construction project will create over 1,000 direct jobs in Normandy and will contribute to the development of the French’s offshore wind industry.
Sam Dowey, Managing Director at Correll, commented; “We are delighted to have been awarded a further contract with the Prysmian Group and we very much look forward to continuing to grow our partnership. This project will be completed using Correll’s cable pull-in and termination & testing team under our new bespoke turnkey solution”.
