Conseil General de La Vendee (CGLV) is developing the Noirmoutier Offshore Wind Farm 500MW project in Noirmoutier, France.

The project involves the construction of a new 500MW offshore wind farm project housing 96 wind turbines on a 70km2 area, including turbine foundations and installation of sub-sea transmission cables.

The project will generate 1,800 GW hours (GWh) per year, equivalent to the electricity consumption of 720,000 homes excluding heating.

On November 29, 2013, The consortium of EDF Energies Nouvelles, Wpd offshore and Alstom submitted the bids for project.

In May 2014, the Build Operate contract was awarded to a consortium comprising GDF SUEZ, EDP Renewables, Neoen Marine and AREVA.

In June 2014, the consortium of Engie, EDP Renewables and The Caisse des Dépôts (Neoen Marine) was selected for the implementation of this wind farm in second offshore wind turbine tender.

The public consultation was held from May 2, 2015 to August 7, 2015.

The manufacture of 8MW AREVA wind turbines are expected to commence in Le Havre in 2018.

On May 9, 2017, Éoliennes en mer Ile d'Yeu and Noirmoutier (EMYN) has filed applications for administrative approvals (an application for a concession for the use of the public maritime domain and authorization under the "Water Act").

From July 13 to September 30, 2017 (excluding any meteorological interruptions), a geotechnical campaign of the marine subsoil is being carried out from a dynamically positioned vessel. By means of drilling and penetrometry techniques, a survey of the seabed will be carried out on half of the sites of future wind turbines.

Geotechnical study activities are underway and the obtaining of construction approvals and public inquiry is scheduled for 2018. The construction and installation phase is expected to start in 2019.


The project involves the construction of a 500MW offshore wind farm in Noirmoutier, France.
