EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH (EEW SPC) has been commissioned to manufacture 64 monopile foundations at its Rostock site for the Calvados offshore wind farm (Courseulles-sur-Mer) located in Normandy, France for Saipem. The contract signing took place at the beginning of April 2021.

In total, EEW SPC will process about 50,000 tonnes of steel into monopiles from the third quarter of the current year.

"So far, we have successfully completed projects with Saipem that have mainly been in the offshore oil/gas and clad pipe sectors. We are proud that after excellent collaboration on the first offshore wind jacket project Formosa II, we are now in a position to realise the first monopile project for Saipem with Calvados offshore wind farm,"
said Michael Hof, Managing Director of EEW Holding GmbH & Co. KG.

Totalling an estimated €2 billion, the
Calvados project involves the construction of 64 wind turbines, located over 10 km off the French coast. With a capacity of 450 MW, it is expected to produce the equivalent of the annual electricity use of 630,000 people, i.e. over 90% of the population of Calvados. It is expected to enter service in 2024. It is being developed by Éolien Maritime France, a consortium including EDF Renewables, EIH S.à.r.l, (a subsidiary of Enbridge Inc., CPP Investments) and wpd.
