Madrid, 2nd June 2023-. The Amper Group, through its subsidiary Nervión Naval Offshore, will build components and carry out assembly work for the offshore wind structures that the joint venture comprising Navantia Seanergies and Windar recently contracted to supply the Le Tréport wind farm off the French coast. Through the Naval OffShore division, this is the largest order received by the Amper Group in its history. As a result, Nervión Naval Offshore’s portfolio amounts to more than 140 million euros.
The award of this work, by Navantia Seanergies, involves the prefabrication of metal components such as nodes, secondary steel and assembly of the jackets or structures to support the wind turbines on the seabed. The project is scheduled to be executed between 2023 and 2025 at the Navantia Fene (A Coruña) facilities.
Nervión Naval Offshore has participated to date in the manufacture of more than 170 jackets, including those manufactured for Navantia in Spain and for SDMS in TAIWAN, making it one of the private companies with the largest workload in this sector worldwide.
The jackets provide stability to the wind turbine and allow it to withstand the most extreme environmental conditions in environments between 60 and 90 metres deep at sea, while for deeper waters, floating structures such as semi-submersible, Spar or TLP structures are used, of which Nervion Naval Offshore is also an expert manufacturer.
