Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) has signed a contract with GE Wind France SAS to provide the full temporary power scope during the construction phase of the
Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm.

It marks the company’s first contract in France, following over 20 projects throughout Europe.

Alida Lewis, Project Manager at MRE, commented: “MRE has worked with GE previously on the Merkur Offshore Wind Farm and our work on Saint Nazaire Offshore Wind Farm is a fantastic opportunity to build on our existing relationship and be involved in France’s first offshore wind farm.”

The 480 MW
Saint-Nazaire wind farm, currently owned by EDF (50%), Enbridge (25.5%) and CPP (24.5%), is expected to be fully commissioned by the end of 2022. It is located between 12 and 20 kilometres off the Loire-Atlantique coast. It will consist of 80 GE Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines. Work is scheduled to run throughout the summer and autumn.

According to GE, each Haliade turbine powers 5,000 homes; the project is expected to generate the equivalent of 20% of Loire-Atlantique’s electricity consumption.
