January 6, 2019

Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has been appointed to deliver the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) and Detailed Design of wind turbine jacket substructures for St Brieuc Offshore Windfarm, located off the coast of Northern France.

The design, engineering and project management consultancy said that the windfarm is being developed by Ailes Marines, a consortium of Iberdrola, Renewable Energy Systems (RES) and Caisse des dépôts.

The scope of work includes the design of 62 jackets for the Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines, utilising its extensive geotechnical expertise to mitigate challenging ground conditions.

Once operational in 2023, the windfarm will have a total installed capacity of 496 megawatts, capable of generating enough clean energy for 835,000 people.

Andy Thompson, Atkins’ Director of Offshore Wind, said: “This adds to our growing portfolio of offshore wind projects that provide clean energy and play a crucial part in Europe’s energy mix."It is important that as we work with an international supply chain, we advance the deployment of cost effective renewable energy technologies.”

The Atkins business is one of the leading providers of engineering and design services to the global offshore wind industry, having been involved in over 10GW of offshore wind projects, including floating wind, and sees major potential growth markets for this technology in the US.
