MMT Sweden on UXO survey duty offshore France

RTE Réseau de Transport d’Electricité has selected MMT SWEDEN AB to carry out the unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey along the export cable route of the Calvados offshore wind farm.

The 448 MW Calvados offshore wind farm is being developed by Éolien Maritime France (EMF) and wpd. EMF is a joint venture between EDF Renewables, Enbridge, and CPP Investments.

The developers reached the financial close and started construction on the EUR 2 billion project in February

The wind farm will feature 64 Siemens Gamesa 7 MW wind turbines located more than 10 kilometres from the Bessin coastline and cover a total surface area of approximately 45km².

Upon its commissioning, scheduled in 2024, the wind farm will generate the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 630,000 people, or over 90 per cent of the Calvados French department’s population.
