Ocean Winds, 50/50 owned by EDPR and Engie, and the Banque des territoires, as shareholders of the Eoliennes flottantes du golfe du Lion (EFGL) project, have just reached the Final Investment Decision, committing to the construction.
This step will allow the signing of contracts with the main industrial and financial partners and the launch of the project's actual implementation phase. The EFGL pilot project involves the construction and operation of three 10 MW floating wind turbines, more than 16 km offshore from Leucate (Aude) and Le Barcarès (Pyrénées-Orientales). The farm is scheduled to be commissioned at the end of 2023 and will operate for 20 years.
