Port of Brest is preparing itself to support the offshore renewable energy
sector and has hired Blue Water to assisted as port agents. The port of
Brest is the most westerly major port in the Brittany region of France.
The region of Bretagne owns the Port of Brest and after some time of planning,
it was decided to invest in the future and construct a 400.000 square metre
area. The upgrade includes a new heavy load quay for large components to
the renewable offshore industry.
For this project, Blue Water have acted as port agents for several coasters
arriving in Brest with so called sheet piles.
In total, the region will be investing around €220m in this project, which
is scheduled to be completed in 2020. The aim is to attract important players
within tidal as well as offshore wind energy.
“This upgrade will hopefully attract large players from the offshore industry.
With our experience and years of involvement in challenging projects, we
are ready to provide all operators with the best services within offshore
wind,” says Marianne Girardin, Marine and renewables Manager at Blue
