Siemens Gamesa to deliver its D8 platform for Yeu-Noirmoutier and Dieppe-Le Tréport projects in France


Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE), through its fully owned subsidiary Adwen France SAS, plans to deliver its 8 MW offshore wind turbine, the D8, in two projects off the French coast, namely Dieppe-Le Tréport and Yeu-Noirmoutier, for a total of almost 1 GW.

The direct drive wind turbine will replace Adwen’s AD8 model following SGRE’s decision to focus its sales efforts on one 8MW platform. As a result, the manufacturing of the AD8 will be discontinued while further developments of the technology will be part of the company’s comprehensive product portfolio review.

The switch to the D8 platform as the technical solution for the projects being developed by Eoliennes en Mer Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier and Eoliennes en Mer Dieppe Le Tréport, has been approved by the French Minister for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition after review by the Energy Regulation Commission (CRE). The change for the project developed by Ailes Marines in the bay of Saint-Brieuc has also been communicated to the government and is still under the approval process.
