Alstom and STX France transition agreement
Alstom and STX France have come to an agreement that covers the supply of transition parts used to affix an offshore wind turbine to its monopile foundations.
Jérôme Pécresse, chairman, Alstom Renewable Power, said: “The signing of this agreement with STX France represents an important step in the inception of a French marine energy cluster.”
Alstom says the transition part was designed to meet the specific technical requirements of the Haliade 150 wind turbine in the framework of France’s second call for tender in offshore wind.
“This decision complements other initiatives taken by Alstom and EDF EN as a result of our success during France’s first call for tenders that we hope to build on as a result of the second call for tenders,” he added.
The three French projects in the first call for tenders and the two projects in the second call together will help to create a renewable marine energy industrial cluster in France that can also serve other markets.
Alstom’s offshore technology has been selected by KNK Wind for Arcadis Ost 1 in Germany, which will feature 58 wind offshore turbines on an area of around 30km² in the Baltic Sea. The windfarm’s overall capacity will reach around 350 MW.
Elsewhere, Alstom says the construction of its two factories in Saint-Nazaire, which will produce nacelles and generators, is progressing well. The factories are scheduled to be completed in 2014.
