Sponsored by

The European consortium comprising EDF Energies Nouvelles and company, wpd offshore, have announced that they have submitted two bids for the Tréport and Ile d’ Yeu/Ile de Noirmoutier projects.

These two projects fall within the framework of the second call for tenders for French offshore wind energy projects, representing total new capacity of 1,000 MW to be installed by 2023. Alstom is serving as partner for the wind turbines.

In March 2013, the French government launched a call for tenders for the construction and operation of two large-scale offshore wind farms:

·      One site located off Tréport in the Haute Normandie region;

·      One site between the Ile d’ Yeu and Ile de Noirmoutier in the Pays de la Loire region.

Each site offers capacity of 480-500 MW to be brought into service between 2021 and 2023.

This national call for tenders for 1,000 MW is in addition to the first call for tenders for 2,500 MW launched in 2011, which comprised five wind energy projects off the French coast (the Channel and the Atlantic). Three of the four lots awarded by the Government were won by the consortium headed by EDF Energies Nouvelles: Fécamp (498 MW), Courseulles-sur-Mer (450 MW) and Saint-Nazaire (480 MW). These projects are due to come into service starting from 2018.
