Fecamp Offshore Wind Farm Commences Production


Enbridge and its partners have inaugurated the 497 MW Fécamp Offshore Wind Farm, located 13 kilometers off the French coast. 

The project consists of 71 offshore Siemens Gamesa turbines, each with a generation capacity of 7 MW. Its ownership also includes EDF Renewables, CPP Investments and Skyborn Renewables.

“The successful completion of the Fécamp Offshore Wind Farm marks a significant milestone for Enbridge and our project partners,” says Enbridge’s Matthew Akman.

“These projects further highlight our commitment to being a leader in the energy transition and providing reliable, clean and secure energy to the region.”

Construction of the 71 gravity-based foundations and production of wind turbine blades, nacelles and generators took place in Le Havre, and pre-assembly of components in Cherbourg.

The project is Enbridge’s second offshore wind energy project in France. Enbridge’s first such project in the country, the 480 MW Saint-Nazaire project, entered service in 2022.
