Drilling Template – Saint-Nazaire

DEME Offshore is transporting and installing 80 monopiles and transition pieces for the Sant-Nazaire offshore wind farm in France. To assist DEME with this installation, TWD designed a simple and effective drilling template design.

The drilling template is designed to install the pin-pile foundations of the offshore substation within tolerance. We designed the template with leveling cylinders to make sure it can accommodate the uneven seabed. This allows for a safe and effective foundation installation.

TWD is proud to have worked with DEME to install Saint-Nazaire (496 MW). The farm will serve green energy to 400.000 homes.
