Half of Fécamp Wind Turbines Installed Offshore France

As of 15 January, 37 out of 71 Siemens Gamesa 7 MW wind turbines are installed at the Fécamp offshore wind farm site in Normandy, France.

In July 2023, DEME Offshore’s Innovation installed the components of the first Siemens Gamesa 7 MW wind turbine at the construction site located between 13 and 24 kilometres off the coast of Normandy.

All wind turbines will be placed on gravity-based foundations which were supplied and installed by the consortium of Boskalis, Saipem, and Bouygues Construction.

Skyborn Renewables, one of the developers of the 500 MW wind project, said that half of the turbines from Fécamp are now operational.

The offshore wind farm has been producing and injecting electricity into the grid since the summer of 2023 and it will soon reach a capacity of nearly 250 MW, according to the project’s website.


When commissioned, the 500 MW Fécamp offshore wind farm will supply low-carbon electricity for the annual electricity consumption of 770,000 people, equivalent to 60 percent of the population of Seine-Maritime.

The wind farm will contribute to achieving France’s objective of 40 per cent of electricity production from renewable sources by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050.

The project is being jointly developed by Eolien Maritime France (EMF), a joint venture between the French company EDF Renouvelables; EIH S.à.rl, owned by Enbridge Inc. and CPP Investments; and Skyborn Renewables (formerly wpd offshore).
