Saint-Nazaire construction base inaugurated

Eolien Maritime France (EMF) has inaugurated the construction base for the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind project in France.

The construction base is located at Quai De Kribi in Saint-Nazaire and will be used to coordinate the construction of the wind farm.

Saint-Nazaire, also known as Parc du Banc de Guérande, will comprise 80 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines manufactured in France.

The 480 MW project is scheduled to be operational in the summer of 2022, when it will become France’s first commercial offshore wind farm.

It is being developed by Eolien Maritime France (EMF), a consortium of EDF Renouvelables, Enbridge, and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.
