Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) signed a framework agreement with Eolien Maritime France (EMF) for supplying and servicing offshore wind turbines.
The total capacity of wind turbines will be approximately 1,000 MW for two of EMF’s three French offshore wind projects currently under development. Both projects will use SWT-7.0-154 DD offshore wind turbines.
The agreement includes a provision for Siemens Gamesa to perform wind turbine service for a period up to 15 years also subject to contract and EMF’s final investment decision.
SGRE’s planned offshore wind turbine manufacturing facility currently under development in the Port of Le Havre will produce the turbines for the consortium’s projects.
“This agreement again confirms Siemens Gamesa’s position as leader of the offshore wind market in France and allows us to strengthen our medium-term prospects as part of the development of the industrial project in Le Havre,” said Markus Tacke, CEO of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.
