Saint-Nazaire Offshore Wind Project



Enbridge and its partner EDF Renouvelables are developing the Saint-Nazaire Offshore Wind Project in the Loire-Atlantique region in coastal France.

Enbridge and its partner EDF Renouvelables are developing the Saint-Nazaire Offshore Wind Project in the Loire-Atlantique region in coastal France.

The 480-megawatt (MW) wind farm will feature 80 GE Haliade 160-6MW turbines to be manufactured in France. According to GE, each Haliade turbine powers 5,000 homes; the project is expected to generate the equivalent of 20% of the Loire-Atlantique’s electricity consumption.

Turbines will be located between 12 and 20 kilometres off the Loire-Atlantique coast, at depths ranging from 12 to 25 metres, and deployed an area of about 78 square km.

Enbridge has a 50% ownership stake in the Saint-Nazaire Offshore Wind Project, which is expected to enter service in 2022.
