Ocean Winds has signed a capacity reservation agreement with Navantia-Windar consortium to manufacture 62 jackets for wind turbines to be built in Fene (La Coruña), for the Dieppe le Tréport project in northern France waters.

This project, which is soon expected to materialise in the form of a contract, is the largest project commissioned to Windar-Navantia to date.

The 496 MW Dieppe Le Tréport wind farm in France will have a generating capacity of 496 MW, enough to supply some 850,000 people with sustainable electricity per year from 2026. The project is owned by the consortium formed by Spanish company Ocean Winds (a joint venture between ENGIE and EDPR), Sumitomo Corporation and the French financial institution Banque des Territoires.

Fabrication works will begin at the Fene shipyard in the first quarter of 2023 and will last approximately two years.
The jackets for this contract will be four-legged jackets, weighing around 1,000 tonnes.


In addition, Navantia Seanergies will build two substation jackets in Puerto Real, one of them for the electrical substation of the Dieppe Le Tréport wind farm and the second for the one of
Îles d'Yeu et Noirmoutier. Both projects have a capacity reserve in Puerto Real since last June.

This same project will also provide additional employment for Windar Renovables, which will manufacture 248 piles at its facilities in Avilés.


Ocean Winds already announced last July the contracting of 14 monopiles to Navantia-Windar in 2022, which will be built at the new factory in Fene.


To remind, Navantia Seanergies is Navantia's brand for the green energy business. It was launched in April 2022 with the forecast of signing contracts valued at €500 million in its first months and achieving a turnover of more than 350 million euros per year.
