AIles Marines annonce la fin des travaux de forage et de scellement des pieux du parc éolien en mer de Saint-Brieuc
La totalité des 62 positions des éoliennes et la sous station-électrique ont été forées et équipées de pieux par le navire AEOLUS de la société Van Oord. Sa mission terminée, le navire a quitté la zone des travaux ce jour.
L’installation du parc éolien en mer de Saint-Brieuc progresse, puisque la 31ᵉ éolienne a été installée en mer cette semaine, soit 50% du parc éolien composé de 62 éoliennes. La mise en service progressive du parc permettra, à terme, d’alimenter 835 000 personnes en énergie verte, pour une puissance de 496 mégawatts.
Ailes Marines, a company 100% owned by the Iberdrola group, today announces the production of the first megawatt-hours from the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm.
The Iberdrola Group launches production of its first French offshore wind farm, and the 4th in Europe. This commissioning confirms the Group's leading position in this business segment.
The installation of the first of the 62 wind turbines that will equip the Saint-Brieuc wind farm was carried out on May 9 by Ailes Marines' contractor, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. The operation was carried out from the Norwegian company Fred Olsen's jack-up vessel Brave Tern.
Last March, Iberdrola France and the Institute for Energy Transition (ITE) France Energies Marines signed a research and development agreement. Iberdrola France is now a member of the Institute.
Ailes Marines inaugurates the temporary technical base of the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm in the port of Saint-Malo
On February 24, Ailes Marines, a subsidiary of Iberdrola, inaugurated the temporary technical base of the offshore wind farm in Saint-Brieuc. The inauguration was attended by Daniel Cueff, Vice-President of the Brittany Region and Stéphane Alain Riou, Director of Iberdrola France's offshore wind farm in the port of Saint-Malo.
Ailes Marines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Iberdrola, is assisting France Energies Marines in the implementation of fisheries resource monitoring at the offshore wind farm off the coast of Saint-Brieuc Bay.
Signing of a partnership to study the feasibility of a sustainable and integrated aquaculture farm within the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm
The Comité Régional de la Conchyliculture Bretagne Nord (CRCBN) and Ailes Marines signed today an agreement to finance a feasibility study for an Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) farm project, in the park and around the foundations of the wind turbines at sea of the Saint-Brieuc park
As of November 28, 2022, the Aeolus vessel has completed the 40th wind turbine position. It has been back to its home port in Vlissingen (The Netherlands) for three days to perform its annual in-depth maintenance (cleaning and checking of tools, machines and drills) which will last between 1 and 3 months depending on identified needs. The Aeolus will return to the work area during the first quarter of 2023, to continue the drilling and pile installation operations on the 22 remaining wind turbine positions out of a total of 62.
In parallel with the deployment of the offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, the Region of Brittany, represented by its president Loïg Chesnais-Girard, and Ailes Marines, have signed today the agreement of the IBReizh program, intended to support projects in Brittany.
On June 23, Iberdrola France and Ailes Marines organized a visit to the offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc: an event exclusively dedicated to the women who are helping to make the project a reality. Departing from the Pointe de L'Arcouest, the guests were able to board the Vedettes de Bréhat for the offshore wind farm and appreciate the scale of the project.
As part of the impact studies regularly carried out by Ailes Marines and several specialized scientific organizations, a new analysis was conducted by the Laboratoire des Sciences de l'Environnement Marin to assess the impact of noise associated with the construction phase of offshore wind turbines on the Coquille Saint-Jacques and the Praire.
On Tuesday 20 December 2022, the Comité Régional de la Conchyliculture Bretagne Nord (CRCBN) and Ailes Marines signed an agreement to finance a feasibility study for an Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) farm project. Financed by Ailes Marines, the feasibility study will aim to determine the regulatory, technical and economic conditions of this innovative project.
Offshore wind power is a true emblem of the energy transition and has already won over many countries. The production of energy by offshore wind power is indeed very interesting depending on the geographical location of the farms. In France, it has a real potential, thanks to a vast and windy maritime landscape. Discover it.
Anxious to develop a wind power project that respects the environment and is integrated into the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, Ailes Marines has put in place a team of engineers and specialized doctors. It was important for the company to carry out additional studies in the interests of transparency and responsibility.
Since the start of construction of the park in 2021, there have been numerous installation steps. The collaboration of several key players has ensured that deadlines are met and that massive pieces, such as the jackets foundations, are carefully transported to the park's location.
As we approach the delivery of the project scheduled for 2023, we take a look at the latest major advances in the project.
Installed on September 5, 2022, the electrical substation will play a key role in the operation of the offshore wind farm in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc. Intended to transmit the electrical flows between the wind turbines and the Earth, its installation is a particularly important step in the progress of the construction.
Here is a closer look at its characteristics.
To monitor noise levels during the tests and then during the drilling and installation work, Ailes Marines has contracted SOMME, an independent consultancy specialising in the observation of marine ecosystems, on the recommendation of the CDPMEM22.
Interview with Delphine Mathias, underwater acoustics research officer at SOMME.
