DEME Group’s Apollo Arrives at the Dieppe le Tréport Offshore Wind Farm

DEME Group have announced the arrival of their offshore installation vessel ‘Apollo’ this week at the Dieppe le Tréport OWF (offshore wind farm) in France, situated 15km offshore between Dieppe and le Tréport on the Northern Normandy coast.

Their crew and project team are now preparing the piling operations for the first of the 62 jacket foundations. The project in Dieppe le Tréport is another large-scale offshore wind farm project for DEME in France. It follows groundbreaking solutions deployed in recent years at Saint-Nazaire and the Iles d’Yeu and Noirmoutier offshore wind farm.

DEME will transport and install the pin piles and jackets forming the foundations for 62 wind turbines, as well as take care of the transport and installation of the pin piles, the jacket, and the topside for the offshore substation. DEME will also execute the EPCI contract for a total of 120 km of inter-array cables.

The 496MW Dieppe Le Tréport offshore wind farm – which was developed by Les Éoliennes en Mer Services and is owned by OW Ocean Winds (a joint venture by ENGIE and EDPR), Sumitomo Corporation, and Banque des Territoires – is set to supply almost 850,000 people with renewable energy.
