Iberdrola continues to make progress in the development of Saint Brieuc, its first large-scale offshore wind project in Brittany with EUR 2.4 billion investment and 496 megawatts installed capacity and has awarded a major contract for the construction of the offshore substation. A joint venture, formed by Eiffage Métal and Engie Solutions, will be responsible for the fabrication of all the structural elements of the substation, except for the electrical equipment. Eiffage Métal will be in charge of the engineering and construction of the foundation and topside that houses the transformers and electrical equipment. ENGIE Solutions will carry out final assembly work and commissioning tests.

The substation is one of the key elements of the windfarm, tasked with collecting and preparing for export all the electricity produced by the 62 wind turbines, estimated at around 1,820 GWh per year. With this energy production it will be possible to sustainably meet the demand of 835,000 people and avoid the emission of 100,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere each year.

The substation is made up of a jacket foundation, measuring 63 m high and weighing 1,630 tons and a topside measuring 55 m long, 31 m wide and 23 m high, with a total weight of approximately 3,400 tons.

Fabrication works, scheduled to finish in early 2022, will be carried out in the yards operated by Eiffage in Belgium and Poland with final assembly works to take place in Belgium at the shipyards run by Engie Solutions.
