Saint Nazaire  , Fécamp and Calvados. Saint Nazaire is now underway; piling for the substation jacket started September 2020 with foundation installation starting spring 2021 and commissioning in late 2022.

In June 2020, wpd, EDF and Enbridge/CPPIB announced financial close for the approximately EUR 2 billion 398 MW
Fécamp project. Covering an area of 67 km2, 71 wind turbines (SGRE 154-7.0 MW) will be installed in water depths of 25 to 30 m and between 13 and 22 km from the coastline with commissioning 2023.

The two Norman projects of
Calvados and Fécamp will produce enough electricity to cover respectively the equivalent of the electricity consumption of nearly 630,000 people, or more than 90% of the inhabitants of Calvados, and more than 770 000 people, or more than 60% of the inhabitants of Seine-Maritime.
