BOURBON creates offshore wind division

After more than 10 years of installation of the main floating wind farm prototypes in Europe, BOURBON announces the setup of a new division dedicated to offshore wind.

This division will support the group’s ambition to become a major player in the entire value chain: pre-studies, transport and installation services, field maintenance, floaters repair and personnel transport.

Bourbon Wind thus confirms the Group’s commitment to contribute to the growth of the renewable energy industry, and Offshore wind power in particular, either as a service provider or as a prime contractor (EPCI contract), in Europe and worldwide.

This new division will lead BOURBON’s strategy and the implementation of its ambitious wind development plan to serve fields from 250 MW to 1 GW by 2030. Bourbon Wind will coordinate all the group’s activities in this field, creating important cross-functional synergies:

  • Bourbon Subsea Services for development studies, turnkey construction contract tenders (EPCI), as well as subsea inspection services (ROV)
  • Bourbon Mobility for personnel transportation tenders (CTV),
  • and Bourbon Marine & Logistics for shipmanagement, maintenance services (SOV) as well as logistics base management.

The division will be headed by Patrick Belenfant (member of the Group Executive Committee), who has 30 years of experience in the energy and subsea sectors. He and his team initiated the first floating wind turbine installation off the coast of Portugal in 2011.

“With our unique experience in building, installing and maintaining prototypes and pilot farms, our ambition is to actively participate in the development of the floating wind industry with our current and future partners. We have a detailed understanding of the maritime constraints and risks for the installation and management of wind turbines. By creating this division, we will focus more on the industrial challenges of large-scale wind farms deployment,” said Patrick Belenfant, CEO of Bourbon Wind.
