Saint-Brieuc Offshore Wind Farm Goes Operational


Iberdrola’s 496 MW Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm, which the company calls the second fully operational offshore wind farm in France and the first in Brittany, has been put into production.

The project’s 62 turbines are feeding into the national electricity grid, managed by RTE.

The company estimates production at around 1,820 GWh annually. 

“We are particularly proud today to announce the full commissioning of the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm, 12 years after being named the winner and three years after the start of installation work,” says Emmanuel Rollin, director France of Iberdrola. 

“I would like to thank all the stakeholders in the region who have supported us over the years, as well as the teams at Iberdrola. And our suppliers, who have been involved since 2012 in the realization of this major industrial project, which is supporting the energy transition and employment in France.”

The components of the jacket foundation were partly built and assembled on the Brest polder by the Navantia Windar. The electrical equipment for the masts of the 62 wind turbines was assembled by Haizea Breizh, also on the Brest polder.

The project’s wind turbines were manufactured on Siemens Gamesa’s industrial site located in the port of Le Havre. 

The wind farm started development in 2012 and has been fully financed by Iberdrola.
