Areva said a “partnership agreement” with CGN will look for commercial opportunities across several renewable sources, including concentrating solar power, biomass and storage technology – but with offshore wind their “priority”.
A statement said: “Areva will provide its expertise as an offshore wind turbine manufacturer, and CGN will contribute to future projects as an investor, developer, and operator of wind farms in China and Europe.”
The deal came as one element of a wider power sector co-operation pact between Areva and CGN and another Chinese giant, China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC).
CGN and Areva have worked together before in the nuclear field.
Areva recently unveiled plans for an 8MW wind turbine as part of a bid to win megawatts in France’s next offshore tender round.
