Offshore wind power: AREVA signs industrial partnership agreement

AREVA, Entrepose Projets, a subsidiary of Entrepose Contracting, and Fouré Lagadec have signed an industrial partnership agreement for the manufacturing of AREVA‘s offshore turbine masts destined for future wind farms in France and in the south of United Kingdom, according to a press release.  

Under the terms of the agreement, Entrepose Projets will manufacture, through CMP Dunkerque, its subsidiary specialized in high technology welding for the wind turbine mast.

Fouré Lagadec, a company based in Le Havre, will manufacture the lower section of those masts, made possible by an investment of several million euros in new industrial equipment.

This agreement will create nearly 200 jobs and will support the long-term establishment of the offshore wind sector in France through the development of industrial expertise in the regions of Haute Normandie and Nord-Pas-de-Calais.
