EDF Renewables and the Maple Power joint venture between Canada’s Enbridge and CPP Investments have signed an agreement with BW Ideol to cooperate on the design of floating wind foundations for the upcoming French floating wind tender (AO6).

The candidates have already submitted their pre-selection filing for the two sites with 250MW capacity each in the Mediterranean that should produce enough power for one million French consumers.

“This second technological collaboration with the teams of EDF Renouvelables and Maple Power – after an initial cooperation within the framework of the Bretagne Sud call for tenders (AO5) – attests to the complementarity of our respective teams and the excellent collaboration between them,” BW Ideol chief executive Paul de la Guérivière said.
