EDF snaps up giant Neart Na Gaoithe offshore wind farm
EDF Group won a competitive bidding process to acquire the 450MW Neart na Gaoithe project from developer Mainstream Renewable Power.
Due to come online in 2023, Neart na Gaoithe is expected to produce enough electricity to power around 375,000 homes.
"This large-scale new offshore project demonstrates our strong ambition in being a leading global player in the offshore wind industry," Bruno Bensasson, CEO of EDF Energies Nouvelles, said. "It confirms EDF Group's wider commitment to renewables in countries where EDF already has a strong footprint such as the United Kingdom."
