Award of the contract is subject to a notice to proceed, which is contingent upon Eoliennes Offshore du Calvados SAS (EODC) making a final investment decision.

The Courseulles-sur-Mer Offshore Wind Farm zone is located up to 16km off the coast of the  Calvados region, in water depths ranging from 22 to 31 metres.

The foundations consist of large steel monopiles with transition pieces, to be fabricated in Europe and installed by the crane vessel, Saipem 3000.
