Boluda France Tugboats Tow France’s First Floating Wind Turbine

On October 12 Boluda Towage and Salvage’s French subsidiary Boluda France maneuvered the first floating wind turbine in France through the port of Nantes Saint-Nazaire, deploying tugs Croisic and VB Ouragan.

The successful towing operation validates Boluda France’s strategic investment in multi-functional tugs capable of handling structures for projects carried out by EMR in France.

Boluda France associates confirmed that the technical and maritime challenge presented by the extraordinary dimensions and complex structure of the 5,000-ton Floatgen wind turbine, 36 m high by 36 m wide with a 7.5 m draft, required a considerable adjustment to towage maneuvers.

With the successful completion of the operation Boluda France’s onshore staff and crews demonstrated their skills, broadening the company’s already extensive experience in preparing and conducting transport and installation projects for EMR.

The ongoing demand for personalized towing services drives Boluda France to continue developing solutions for all its clients, particularly EMR.
