The wind turbine installation work is being carried out by DEME Offshore’s jack-up vessel Innovation which is currently located at the offshore site, according to AIS data.

The first Siemens Gamesa 7 MW unit was installed at the construction site some 13-24 kilometres off the coast of Normandy in July 2023.

The Fécamp offshore wind farm, with a capacity of 500 MW, started generating electricity and feeding it into the grid upon the installation of its first turbine.

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


When commissioned, the 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 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).
