Areva has selected Schneider Electric as its preferred supplier of power equipment for its offshore wind projects. This includes, in particular, the wind farm of 100 5 MW turbines in the bay of Saint Brieuc off the coast of Brittany and the current tenders for the offshore wind farms at Le Tréport off the coast of Haute-Normandie and the islands of Yeu and Noirmoutier in Pays de la Loire (France).
Developed as part of the offshore programme launched by the French government in 2011, these wind farms will not only contribute to France meeting its targets laid down in the EU’s Climate and Energy Package, but also firmly establish a French sector of excellence for a promising technology. Under the terms of the agreement, Schneider Electric will supply transformers and circuit breakers for Areva’s wind farms.
