Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) and Eolien Maritime France (EMF) have signed a framework agreement with the objective of supplying and servicing offshore wind turbines with a capacity of approximately 1,000MW for two of EMF’s three French offshore wind projects currently under development.
Both projects are expected to use SWT-7.0-154 DD offshore wind turbines and are subject to contract and EMF’s final investment decision. EMF members are EDF Renewables and Enbridge. The agreement further includes a future provision for Siemens Gamesa to perform wind turbine service for a period up to 15 years also subject to contract and EMF’s final investment decision. SGRE’s planned offshore wind turbine manufacturing facility currently under development in the Port of Le Havre will produce the turbines for the consortium's projects.
