AREVA and Schneider Electric sign wind power contract

AREVA has selected Schneider Electric as its preferred supplier of power equipment for its offshore wind projects. 

This includes the wind farm made up of 100 5MW turbines in the bay of Saint Brieuc off the coast of Brittany and the current tenders for offshore wind farms at Le Tréport off the coast of Haute-Normandie and the islands of Yeu and Noirmoutier in Pays de la Loire, France.

Under the terms of the agreement, Schneider Electric will supply transformers and circuit breakers for AREVA’s wind farms. These components will be manufactured at two of Schneider Electric’s French industrial sites, located near Metz and Grenoble.
