A consortium of TotalEnergies, Green Investment Group (GIG) and Qair has been pre-selected by DGEC to participate in an upcoming competitive tender for the development of a floating wind farm of up to 270 MW in Southern Brittany. Through the tender, the consortium will bid to develop a project that will produce enough green energy to power the equivalent of 250,000 homes across France.
The consortium intends to leverage the member’s unique mix of local knowledge, financial expertise, technical proficiency, their experience in renewable energy, as well as their ambitions for the growth of the floating offshore wind sector.
TotalEnergies, a broad energy company, has expertise in offshore operations and maintenance thanks to its historical activities. TotalEnergies is already developing and building offshore wind projects with a cumulative capacity of approximately 6 GW, including three floating offshore wind projects in Europe and Asia.
Green Investment Group is a global leader in green energy investment and development, which has committed over €30 billion to the sector to date. With a total global portfolio of c.14 GW, GIG is one of the world’s largest players in the offshore wind sector.
Qair, an independent producer of exclusively renewable energy and a pioneer in floating wind power in France, has more than 30 years of experience in the field and a strong local presence in France
The consortium believes the Southern Brittany tender round is a key step in the deployment of this new technology and will help foster the development of a cutting-edge industry in France.
