Construction of an offshore wind turbine manufacturing plant in Normandy
9 June 2020 - New contracts - France
Siemens Gamesa has selected the joint venture led by GTM Normandie-Centre (VINCI Construction France) to build its new offshore wind turbine plant in the port of Le Havre.
The plant will manufacture turbines for offshore wind farms, including those at Fécamp (71 turbines) and Saint-Brieuc (62). The 20-hectare facility, France's largest-ever industrial project focused on renewable energy, will be the world's first-ever plant producing the full range of offshore turbine components under one roof.
Local contractors account for more than one-third of the joint venture, which includes five VINCI Construction subsidiaries and Eurovia Haute-Normandie and will use materials produced in the Le Havre region. The project will employ 350 people and foster regional work integration.
The plant is scheduled for commissioning between late 2021 and early 2022.
