MHI Vestas has been chosen as preferred wind turbine supplier for the Eoliennes Flottantes du golfe du Lion (EFGL) wind farm. The project, developed by a consortium including Engie and EDP Renewables, is scheduled to deploy three V164-10.0MW turbines sitting atop the semi-submersible WindFloat platform from Principle Power.
The parties plan to use Port La Nouvelle in Southern France as the assembly harbour before the turbines are towed into place more than 16 km off the coast of Leucate and Le Barcares. The 30MW pilot project is a continuation of the partnership between EDP Renewables, Engie, and MHI Vestas from the WindFloat Atlantic project, which is currently being installed in Portugal.
