MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has been selected by the Groix & Belle-Ile Floating Offshore Wind Farm company (FEFGBI) to supply offshore wind turbines to the French pre-commercial floating wind farm located in Brittany.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind selection enables the project partners to sign the ADEME financing agreements. MHI Vestas 9.5MW wind turbine was chosen following the withdrawal of General Electric, former wind turbine supplier for the project. The turbines’ higher output per unit, enable the project to reduce the number of offshore wind turbines from four to three. Installing the 9.5MW machine for the Groix and Belle-Ile project will build on the experience from WindFloat Atlantic in Portugal and Kincardine in Scotland.
