First power from Iberdrolas Saint Brieuc offshore wind farm in FranceThe first green megawatts produced from Iberdrola’s Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm have been connected into the French national electricity grid by its manager, RTE. 
 
After a testing phase, the initial electricity to flow from the wind farm was connected to the grid on July 5th under the supervision of Iberdrola’s maritime coordination center based in Kerantour (Côtes d'Armor). The production of the wind farm will increase as the 62 8MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbines are installed and commissioned in the months ahead. The electricity produced is collected by the offshore electrical substation located in the center of the wind farm. It is transported by two subsea export cables with a voltage of 225 kV installed by RTE (Réseau de Transport d'Électricité) to Caroual beach, in Erquy. Electricity is connected into the grid via the Doberie substation located in Hénansal (Côtes-d'Armor). The project will produce about 1,820 GWh/year.
