    August 2, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      August 2 (Renewables Now) - The French government on Tuesday chose 13 candidates for the second stage of its 500-MW floating wind tender involving two projects in the Gulf of Lion in the Mediterranean Sea.

      The announcement comes after in March the government launched a competitive bidding procedure for the development of two 250-MW floating wind parks, one off Narbonne and one off the Gulf of Fos.

      The latest press release says that each of the two plants could be expanded to 750 MW in a second phase for a combined 1.5 GW, which will be enough to cover the average electricity consumption of 1.1 million households.

      Below you can find the companies and consortia that will participate in the competitive dialogue phase, which will run until end-2022. The winners should be announced in the autumn of 2023, while the commissioning of the wind parks is planned for 2030.
