This partnership between experienced marine energy actors is positioned in the Mediterranean (Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées Region) to provide support for development of the French floating wind turbine industry. Closely designed with local players, this project will immediately create lasting economic activity. Based on innovative technology developed in France, the project represents a decisive step in the development of a highly promising renewable national marine energy resource and an encouraging vector for exports.


ENGIE, EDP Renewables, Caisse des Dépôts and Eiffage have today submitted their “pilot floating wind farm” proposal to ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency. From the proposed project areas, they chose the Leucate site on the Mediterranean, France’s highly regarded marine wind energy resource characterized by exceptional winds. Their project « Les éoliennes flottantes du golfe du Lion » is well integrated into the region and benefits from its partners’ solid experience in offshore renewable energy and major infrastructure projects.
