Saipem lined up for €460m offshore wind contract
Saipem is set to be awarded a €460m (£407m) contract to design and build the foundations of the Courseulles-sur-Mer Offshore Wind Farm off the Normandy coast of France.
Award of the contract is subject to a notice to proceed, which is contingent upon Eoliennes Offshore du Calvados SAS (EODC) making a final investment decision.
EODC is sponsored by a consortium of EDF Renewables, Enbridge subsidiary EIH and WPD Offshore France.
The project entails the design, construction and installation works for 64 foundations bearing an equivalent number of turbines.
