SOUTH BRITTANY (AO5)

The offshore floating wind project A05 will be located off the coast of South Brittany with a capacity of up to 270 MW. This tender is part of France’s national Multiannual Energy Programme (Programmation Pluriannuelle de l’Energie) aiming at putting 8.75 GW of offshore wind capacity out to tender by 2028.

BW Ideol has entered into a partnership agreement with EDF Renewables, a subsidiary of EDF Group, and Maple Power, a joint venture between CPP Investments and Enbridge Inc., to cooperate on the design of the technical solution for the floating foundations in the context of France’s first commercial-scale floating wind tender. The French government has announced in Sept 2021 that Eoliennes Flottantes Bretagne Grand Large, a company owned by EDF Renewables and Maple Power, has been selected to participate in the tender process.

For BW Ideol, being chosen by leading offshore wind developers such as EDF Renewables and Maple Power, who have strong experience in the French offshore wind market, confirms the performance of the technology. This will be the world’s first fully competitive floating commercial-scale tender.

  • Capacity: 240 - 270 MW
  • Water depth: 60 - 100 metres

The early selection of the technology allows the partners to optimize the project competitiveness, while leveraging on BW Ideol’s unique floating wind trackrecord in France and abroad
