French energy group Engie and the renewable branch of Portuguese energy utility EDP, EDP Renovaveis (EDPR), have decided to join forces in the upcoming third offshore wind call for tenders in Dunkirk, France. The wind project will range between 250 MW and 750 MW and is expected to be commissioned in 2022.
In December 2016, the French energy regulator Commission de Régulation de l’Energie (CRE) opened the pre-selection phase to pre-qualify the developer of the project (phase ended on 28 February 2017); the competitive dialogue procedure will start in April 2017. The bidders will have to propose innovative solutions to adapt to the site (intense maritime activity and two Natura 2000 sites). This third offshore wind tender will be notified to the European Commission in 2017. SOURCE: Enerdata, full article available HERE.
