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