The floating wind farm will comprise three Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines installed on tensioned line floats designed by SBM Offshore and IFP Energies Nouvelles, and is scheduled to come online in 2023.

The nacelles and the blades for the three wind turbines were manufactured at Siemens Gamesa’s factory in Le Havre.
