DOLFINES and 8.2 France have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to build and develop a common and integrated offer, combining their expertise for the renewable energy market.

Founded in 2000, DOLFINES (formerly DIETSWELL) is an independent specialist in engineering and services in the renewable and conventional energy industry. DOLFINES conducts high-level audits as well as studies for the design of offshore drilling equipment and structures, including for the wind industry.

Commenting on the signing, Jean-Claude Bourdon, President of DOLFINES, said: "With the signing of this MOU with 8.2 France, which brings us its expertise in wind technologies that are very complementary to ours, we are continuing the methodical construction of a value-creating offer for the major players in the gigantic renewable energy market.We had already signed a trade agreement with the large Chinese shipbuilding company CIMC RAFFLES in April 2020, paving the way for cooperation on the commercial development of floating wind in Europe and Asia. At the same time, we are continuing to develop our TrussFloat™ semi-submersible platform for large capacity turbines, seeking to minimize production costs, in line with our strategy."

Bruno Allain, President of 8.2 France, said: "We quickly saw in DOLFINES' expertise in foundations (floating, anchored and onshore), project management in France and internationally and finally the engineering of complex offshore and onshore projects a major and strategic complement to our offer.”
