Installation of the first turbine on a commercial offshore wind farm off France is complete, with the lead-off GE Haliade-150 on the 480MW Saint-Nazaire now in place.

The 6MW machine is one of 80 that the project, being developed by EDF Renewables, Enbridge and CPP off the coast of Brittany, will erect “through the course of 2022”, said GE in a LinkedIn post, with commissioning slated before year-end.
