France continues offshore wind path

The French President, Emmanuel Macron, confirmed the finalisation of six offshore wind farms off the French coast during his visit to Cap Fréhel in Brittany on Wednesday 20th June.

Among the six projects is the Bay of Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm. Ailes Marines, the project developer, welcomes the project confirmation; "This announcement confirms the quality and robustness of the project led by Ailes Marines. We have always believed in the feasibility of our project and have continued its development in parallel with the negotiations with the Government.

"This renewed confidence of the State now gives a decisive impetus to finalise completion of the offshore wind farm of Saint-Brieuc and to materialise its industrial and associated job creation plans in Western France and more specifically in Brittany."
said Emmanuel Rollin, Project Director.

The Bay of Saint-Brieuc has a total area of 75km2, and will have a total capacity of 496MW which will be supplied from 62 8MW Siemens Gamesa turbines. The project is expected to create 2000 jobs.
