A future offshore wind farm in Fécamp

Fécamp / France

Gravity-based foundations by Bouygues Travaux Publics in partnership with Saipem and Boskalis

With total capacity of around 500 MW, this offshore wind farm connected to the power grid should produce the equivalent of the domestic consumption of around 770,000 people, i.e. more than 60% of the inhabitants of the Seine-Maritime region. 71 wind turbines will be installed between 13 and 22 kilometres off the coast, on gravity-based foundations laid on the seabed at depths of 25 to 30 metres. Each weighing 5,000 tonnes, these foundations will ensure the stability of the wind turbines. Constructed in the Bougainville maritime works yard in the Grand Port Maritime of Le Havre, they will be transported by barge to the offshore wind farm site. Works began in June 2020 and are due to be completed in late 2022. The future Fécamp offshore wind farm will contribute to the diversification of France’s energy mix with low-carbon energy.
