The project EFGL is developed by a consortium including Engie and EDP Renewables. It is scheduled to deploy three V164-10.0 MW turbines sitting atop the semi-submersible WindFloat platform from Principle Power, Inc and will be installed in 2022. It's the second time in six weeks, MHI Vestas has been chosen as preferred wind turbine supplier in the French floating offshore wind market. And it is the 5th floating offshore wind project in line for MHI Vestas, following WindFloat 1, Windfloat Atlantic, Kincardine, and Groix & Belle Ile.

"MHI Vestas is proud to be selected as preferred wind turbine supplier for our second floating project in France," said Albert Winnemuller, MHI Vestas Head of Floating. “We continue to refine our technology and experience in the floating sector and are exceptionally pleased to be installing the world’s first 10 MW turbine for EFGL.”

The parties plan to use Port La Nouvelle in Southern France as the assembly harbour before the turbines are towed into place more than 16 km off the coast of Leucate and Le Barcares.
