BayWa r.e. and Elicio, an international producer of onshore and offshore wind energy, have pre-qualified to participate in the Mediterranean floating offshore wind tender in France.
This new commercial call for tender foresees two wind farms, located off the coast of “La Narbonnaise” and off the Gulf of Fos, each with a capacity of 250 MW. They will be located more than 22 km from the coast and will occupy an area of approximately 50 km². An extension of 500 MW is planned for each farm. The winners of the tender procedure will be designated in 2023, with the wind farms expected to be commissioned by 2030. This is the third floating offshore wind project jointly developed by the two companies, which have already pre-qualified for a tender in Southern Brittany, as well as been awarded the 960 MW NE8 site as part of the recent ScotWind tender earlier this year.
