BW Ideol has signed an agreement with the consortium made of EDF Renouvelables, a subsidiary of the EDF group, and Maple Power, a joint venture between CPP Investments and Enbridge Inc., to cooperate on the design of floating foundations for the AO6 floating offshore wind tender.

BW Ideol is already bringing its expertise to EDF Renouvelables & Maple Power within the frame of the South-Brittany Tender (AO5).
