AREVA, Entrepose Projets and Fouré Lagadec sign agreement to manufacture turbine masts for offshore wind farms

An industrial partnership agreement has been signed by AREVA, Entrepose Projets and Fouré Lagadec with the aim of manufacturing AREVA’s offshore turbine masts for wind farms in France and the southern United Kingdom.

AREVA is currently part of the GDF Suez-EDPR-Neoen Marine consortium for the tender of the Tréport and Noirmoutier-Yeu offshore wind farms and was also selected in 2012 for the Saint-Brieuc Bay offshore park. Under the terms of this new agreement, Entrepose Projets, which is a subsidiary of Entrepose Contracting, will manufacture, through CMP Dunkerque, the two upper part sections of the turbine mast while the lower section will be manufactured by Fouré Lagadec, a company based in Le Havre. The project will be supported by an investment of several million euros in new industrial equipment and will create almost 200 jobs while also supporting the long-term establishment of the offshore wind sector in France through the development of industrial expertise in Haute Normandie and Nord-Pas-de-Calais.

“This agreement constitute a major step in the establishment of the AREVA’s industrial offshore plan in France” said Louis-François Durret, Senior Executive Vice-President of the Renewable Energies Business Group. “The offshore wind sector is progressing, bringing jobs and re-industrialization to local regions.”

Bruno Marcé, Chief Operating Officer of Entrepose Contracting, added that the agreement lays the foundation for the reinforcement of the boiler making industry and the development of CMP Dunkerque’s competencies in offshore wind power while Gilles Fournier, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Fouré Lagadec Group commented that thanks to new modern production methods, Fouré Lagadec will be able to mass-produce turbine masts in Le Havre, representing a new area for the company and bringing 60 new jobs to the town.
