EDF : French offshore wind energy call for tenders: The European Consortium led by the EDF Group wins 3 projects

04/06/2012 | 08:28am US/Eastern

Paris, April 6, 2012. The European Consortium led by the EDF Group has won the French offshore wind energy call for tenders for the Saint-Nazaire, Courseulles-sur-Mer and Fécamp projects. These projects, corresponding up to 1,500 MW of new installed capacity, go hand in hand with an ambitious industrial plan which should create about 7,500 direct and indirect jobs, notably with the manufacturing of Alstom's Haliade 150 wind turbine. The foundations are set for a new industry which will serve export markets.The wind energy offshore projects of the Consortium implie the construction of four Alstom facilities in Saint-Nazaire and Cherbourg to manufacture all of the key components of the Haliade 150 next-generation wind turbine, leading to the creation of 5,000 long-term and qualified jobs, including 1,000 direct jobs.At the same time, local units for the construction of the foundations, assembly of the wind turbines and their installation offshore will be set up by the Consortium, as well as operation and maintenance centers for the wind farms. This scheme represents the creation of about 2,500 jobs.", stated Henri Proglio, CEO of EDF. "", added Patrick Kron, CEO of Alstom. "This European Consortium has been formed by EDF Energies Nouvelles, and is gathering together in a partnership Danish group DONG Energy, Nass&Wind Offshore and wpd Offshore, with Alstom as its exclusive turbines supplier. It submitted four projects last January which are underpinned by detailed technical and environmental studies as well as a successful consensus with local stakeholders - elected officials, fishermen, municipal authorities and neighbours.This offshore wind energy programme represents a unique opportunity for France to revitalise the regions while building up a carbon emission-free energy industry.
