September 13 (Renewables Now) - Marine contractor Jan De Nul Group has won a deal for the transportation and installation of turbines at the 480-MW Saint-Nazaire offshore wind project off the French coast.

The contract was signed with the company’s French subsidiary Sodraco International SAS and marks its first deal in the French offshore wind market. The job was awarded by Parc du Banc de Guerande, a joint venture between project developers EDF Renouvelables and Canada’s Enbridge Inc (TSE:ENB).

The Saint-Nazaire park will be located almost 12 km off the Guerande peninsula in western France. Jan De Nul’s task will be to transport and install the power plant’s 80 turbines, which will be supplied by General Electric (NYSE:GE) and installed on monopile foundations. The marine contractor expects to start erecting the machines in the spring of 2022, with the aim of completing their installation by the end of the same year.
