The Big Zero report

Elicio and BayWa r.e. have been selected to tender the first commercial scale floating offshore wind farm in Europe.

The wind farm will be based in Brittany, France and have a capacity of 250MW.

Both companies have been seeking opportunities to enter the floating offshore wind market, almost submitting a joint bid in July during the ‘ScotWind’ offshore wind auction.

Elicio currently manages offshore wind farms with a combined 1.1GW of capacity and BayWa r.e.’s portfolio sits at 4GW of renewable capacity; managing 10GW of assets worldwide.

The new floating offshore wind farm will add to BayWa r.e.’s existing 35MW of wind turbines within Brittany.
