    Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm in France becomes fully operational.

    November 29, 2022 - NS Energy


      EDF Renewables, Enbridge arm EIH, and CPP Investments disclosed that their 480 MW Saint-Nazaire offshore wind plant in France is now working at its 100% capacity. The milestone comes after the deployment of the last turbine of the first commercial-scale French offshore wind plant in Sep 2022. Before this, the facility achieved its initial power in Jun 2022. Situated 12-20 km from the coast of the Guerande peninsula, the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind project would cover 20% of the annual power demands of the Loire-Atlantique department by end-2022. It will deliver electricity for 400,000 homes/y. It would also help France achieve its target of having 32% of its power mix from renewable sources by end-2030. The almost 78 sq km facility is installed with 80 GE Haliade 160-6 MW turbines that were produced in France. Roughly 100 people will continue to work in La Turballe, at the site to help guarantee the operation and maintenance of the wind facility.
