Eolien Plans OWFs Seabed Clearance Off France
Eolien Maritime France, a subsidiary of EDF EN France and Dong Energy Power Holding, has issued a tender for seabed surveys to be carried out at a number of locations offshore France.
The company requires side-scan sonar and multi-beam echo-sounder survey services to execute seabed clearance on approximately 80 WTGs (Wind Turbine Generators) and some additional wind farm zone areas, including monopiles and possibly offshore sub-stations.
A few hectares will be surveyed with a frame in magnetometer survey, followed by an ROV identification survey on few of the targeted locations.
The sites are located along the French coast: Lot 1: Fecamp (Haute Normandie – Seine Maritime) for Eoliennes Offshore des Hautes Falaises; Lot 2: Courseulles sur Mer (Basse Normandie – Calvados) for Eoliennes Offshore du Calvados and Lot 3: Saint Nazaire (Pays de la Loire – Loire Atlantique) for Pare du Banc de Guerande.
Potential contractors are required to submit their application by October 10 and they can be submitted for one or more lots.
The value of the tender hasn’t been disclosed.
