Siemens Gamesa Delivers Turbines For French Floating Offshore Wind Farm

(OW) The wind turbine components to be installed on the Provence Grand Large floating wind farm offshore France have arrived in Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône.

The 24 MW Provence Grand Large is located 40 kilometres west of Marseille and 17 kilometres off the coast of Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, in water depths of around 100 metres.

The floating wind farm will comprise three Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines installed on tensioned line floats designed by SBM Offshore and IFP Energies Nouvelles, and is scheduled to come online in 2023.

The nacelles and the blades for the three wind turbines were manufactured at Siemens Gamesa’s factory in Le Havre.

The three floating foundations for Provence Grand Large are being assembled at Eiffage Métal’s site in Fos-sur-Mer by the French company and Smulders, its Belgian subsidiary.

The Provence Grand Large project is owned by Parc Eolien Offshore de Provence Grand Large – a subsidiary of EDF Renouvelables, and Enbridge Eolien France 2 S.à.r.l (EEF2), a subsidiary of Enbridge Inc. and CPP Investments.

”The 3 wind turbines will be installed at the end of the summer 17km from the coast of the Gulf of Fos,” EDF Renouvelables said in a social media post.
