Wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has reached an agreement to supply its new 8MW offshore wind turbine to the 500MW Saint Brieuc project off the coast of Bretagne in France.

As per the agreement, the SG 8.0-167 DD direct drive wind turbine is set to replace Adwen’s AD 8-180 model after Siemens Gamesa decided to shift focus to offshore direct drive platforms.

“The SG 8.0-167 DD direct drive wind turbine is set to replace Adwen’s AD 8-180 model.”

The transition comes after a receipt of approval from the French Minister for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition.

Siemens Gamesa Offshore CEO Andreas Nauen said: “This switch of technology for Saint Brieuc project is positive news for the project, as well as for the whole industry.

“The strong dedication of our company to offer reliable and competitive solutions while contributing to the local economic and industrial development will allow offshore wind to become a motor of the energy transition in Bretagne.”

The company’s supply portfolio of 1.524GW of projects in France comprises the 500MW Dieppe / Le Tréport, the 500MW Yeu / Noirmoutier and the 24MW Provence Grand large projects.
