The French offshore wind energy sector is in the starting holes and companies are getting ready to enter the lucrative market. Now rotor blade manufacturer LM Wind Power has announced the construction of a new factory in France.

At the plant in Cherbourg, Normandy, which is being built on a site of Ports Normands Associés (PNA), rotor blades for offshore wind turbines will be produced from 2018 onwards. The company wants to create 500 new jobs directly at the plant as well as 2000 new jobs in the supplier sector in the region in the north of France.

The longest rotor blade in the world is also to be built in the plant - the LM 88.4 P. Another growth of the factory up to a capacity between 1.2 and 2.0 gigawatts is possible according to LM Wind Power. This would create even more jobs.

The plant is available to all customers in the global offshore wind market, but the decision in favor of construction was positively influenced by the fact that a contract with GE was concluded at the same time. In the future, LM Wind Power will supply the rotor blades for the Haliade turbines, the offshore wind turbines by the Americans.
