Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) is set to supply turbines for the 497-MW Fecamp offshore wind project located off the coast of Normandy, France.
The wind turbine maker said it has booked a firm order from Eoliennes Offshore des Hautes Falaises, an affiliate of Eolien Maritime France (EMF).
In April 2019, EMF, a joint venture between EDF Renouvelables and Canada-based Enbridge Inc (TSE:ENB), picked Siemens Gamesa as the preferred turbine supplier for the project after GE Renewable Energy dropped out as the exclusive supplier.
The Fecamp project will use 71 units of SWT-7.0-154 offshore wind turbines. The order with EMF’s affiliate includes a 15-year maintenance agreement, Siemens Gamesa said.
