France has launched two new offshore wind tenders. Both tenders are bottom-fixed and will have a total capacity of 2.5 GW.
 
The first wind farm will be 35 km off Oléron island in the Atlantic (Nouvelle-Aquitaine). It will have a capacity of about 1 GW. The choice of zone follows a public consultation with more than 15,000 participants. The second wind farm will be 38 km off the coast of Normandy. It will have a capacity of about 1.5 GW and is the second project in the area – the first one of around 1 GW is currently under tender. Developers can submit their initial application by 23 December 2022. Then there’s a 3-month process of “competitive dialogue” – developers are invited to discuss the project with public authorities before submitting their final application – starting in February 2023. The projects will be awarded at the end of 2023 or early 2024.
