First Four Jacket Foundations for the St. Brieuc Wind Farm Installed
A proud milestone for Kent as the first four jacket foundations for the St. Brieuc Wind Farm are installed, hot on the heels of the successful load-out and transportation from Spain to France itself.
Kent is one of the leading providers of engineering and design services to the global offshore wind industry, involved in developing 70% of all UK offshore wind farms. This significant milestone for the St. Brieuc project is an excellent achievement for all involved parties, including Ailes Marines, Iberdrola, Navantia Windar, Van Oord, and Kent.
It demonstrates Kent's design for Ailes Marines since August 2018, utilizing its multidisciplinary design teams across structural, geotechnical, electrical, and grouted connections expertise.

The jackets have been installed on drilled and grouted piles, also designed by Kent in the world's 1st for drilled and grouted OSW jackets.
Cerianne Cummings, Kent's Director of Offshore Wind, said, "We are proud to have been involved in this non-routine design and celebrate seeing the resulting design materialise in these structures being placed on-site."
Saint-Brieuc is Iberdrola's first large-scale offshore wind power project in Brittany. When it becomes operational in 2023, it will have a total installed capacity of 496 megawatts (MW), capable of generating enough clean energy for 835,000 people.
