The Correll Group has announced that it has been awarded a contract from Prysmian Group to provide support for the pull in and installation of two 225 kV HVAC export cables (each about 17.5 kilometres in length), to the offshore substation platform for the
Courseulles-sur-Mer offshore wind farm.

The 448 MW Calvados offshore wind project is comprised of 64 GE Haliade 150 - 6 MW series wind turbines located more than 10 kilometres from the Bessin coastline and occupies a total surface area of approximately 45kilometres².

The offshore wind farm is being developed by Éolien Maritime France (EMF), a joint venture between EDF Renewables and Enbridge. EMF was awarded the tender by the French Government in 2012, along with the 498 MW
Fécamp and the 480 MW Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farms.

Upon its commissioning, scheduled in 2024, Courseulles-sur-Mer offshore wind farm will generate the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 630,000 people, or over 90% of the Calvados French department’s population.

The three and a half year construction project will create over 1,000 direct jobs in Normandy and will contribute to the development of the French’s offshore wind industry.

Sam Dowey, Managing Director at Correll, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded a further contract with the Prysmian Group and we very much look forward to continuing to grow our partnership. This project will be completed using Correll’s cable pull-in and termination & testing team under our new bespoke turnkey solution”.
