A consortium formed by Hydro Group and Wenex Equipments has successfully secured a US$3.9 million marine renewables contract.
The contract involves the manufacturing and installation of array cabling infrastructure on the SEM-REV marine renewable energy project, which is located 16 nautical-mi off the coast of Le Croisic.
Awarded by Ecole Centrale Nates (ECN), the six-month contract brings together a group of companies comprising of Hydro Group, ETPO, Assystem, PSM, Tetis and Flowline Specialists. Hydro Group will install its marine renewable connectors and power distribution hub at the site later this year.
