Seanergy 2023: SPIE unveils its new offshore wind farm maintenance offer

Published on 22 June 2023

Cergy, 22 June 2023 - SPIE Industrie, a subsidiary of SPIE France that helps manufacturers meet the challenges of energy transition and digital transformation, unveiled its new range of services dedicated to offshore wind farm maintenance at the Seanergy trade fair in Paris on June 20 and 21, 2023. Developed with its partners Services Voltige and VALEMO, this new range of services meets a major need: to promote the development of the renewable energies sector, as France aims to install 40 GW of offshore wind energy capacity by 2050.

After playing an active role in the "Banc de Guérande", the first offshore wind farm off Saint-Nazaire, SPIE Industrie and its partners chose the Seanergy 2023 trade show to introduce a 100% French, experienced, local and sustainable offshore maintenance offer.

Teams from the Marine Energies department of SPIE Industrie, a French subsidiary of the SPIE Group, Europe's leading independent provider of multi-technical services in the fields of energy and communications, presented their various solutions for this sector, covering the entire project lifecycle: design, installation, operation and maintenance of offshore wind farms. Over the years, SPIE has developed a wealth of technical and engineering expertise in the wind and marine energy sectors. Today, this experience enables the company to offer a complete range of services: electrical engineering, development of test benches, monitoring 4.0, environmental protection solutions, electrical and mechanical integration (particularly in the field of high voltage), commissioning and maintenance.

A new maintenance offering for offshore wind farms, for a 100% French industry

Buoyed by the dynamism of a fast-growing market, SPIE Industrie has decided to strengthen its offshore wind farm maintenance offering by joining forces with Services Voltige and VALEMO. The development of this joint offering combines the complementary know-how of the 3 companies: multi-technical services (electrical and mechanical) and industrial maintenance for SPIE Industrie, Services Voltige's expertise in working at height or with difficult access, which are particularly prevalent in this type of environment, and VALEMO's specialization in the operation, monitoring and maintenance of renewable energy installations. Drawing on their experience and joint work, notably on the Saint-Nazaire wind farm (44), the 3 companies have jointly developed this maintenance offering to meet the needs of the various structures installed offshore: wind turbines, their foundations and offshore electrical substations.

"The launch of this offering enables SPIE Industrie to strengthen its position in an emerging market, but above all to provide wind farm developers with a local, relevant and sustainable service offering. At a time when energy sovereignty is a major issue in France, this collaboration between our 3 companies provides a response to the needs of offshore wind farms, and supports a 100% French renewable energy sector" says Xavier de Noblens, Energies Marines Department Manager at SPIE Industrie.
