GDF SUEZ and EDP Renewables have been joined by French coastal region experts Neoen Marine to tender for a new offshore wind farm development, and at the same time to contribute to the development of offshore wind energy in France and the structuring of an industrial sector.

The tender relates to the installation of 1,000 MW of wind turbines off the French coast near Le Tréport (Haute-Normandie – 500 MW) and the islands of Yeu and Noirmoutier (Pays de la Loire – 500 MW) by 2020. The offers will be assessed by the French government based on technical, financial, industrial, social and environmental criteria.

Neoen Marine will provide the consortium with its recognized experience as a developer in the Yeu-Noirmoutier region and its local knowledge, including detailed analysis of the coastline, current usage, and technical aspects. With the support of Caisse des Dépôts, one of its shareholders, Neoen Marine will also strengthen the territorial anchorage already laid down by the consortium.

For their part, GDF SUEZ and EDP Renewables possess a strong expertise in renewable energy (36,000 MW of operating assets and close to 7,000 MW in construction assets worldwide), large-scale industrial projects, and offshore work. With regard to offshore wind power, they are involved in 19 projects representing a total power output of over 5,000 MW.
