Saint-Brieuc Offshore Wind Farm Fully Commissioned in France

Iberdrola has announced the full commissioning of the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm, marking a significant achievement in green energy for France. Located in Brittany, Saint-Brieuc is France’s second offshore wind farm and the first in the region. This project, developed by Iberdrola’s subsidiary Ailes Marines, will provide sustainable energy to 835,000 people, accounting for 9% of Brittany’s total electricity consumption.

The Saint-Brieuc wind farm, equipped with 62 of the most powerful turbines ever installed in France, boasts an annual production of 1,820 GWh. Construction of the wind farm began over four years ago and was completed despite challenging soil and weather conditions, with efforts to minimize the impact on marine life.

Saint-Brieuc is Iberdrola’s fourth offshore wind farm, following West of Duddon Sands (Irish Sea, 389 MW), Wikinger (Baltic Sea, 350 MW), and East Anglia One (North Sea, 714 MW). Iberdrola is continuing its commitment to renewable energy with upcoming projects such as Baltic Eagle, East Anglia 3, and Vineyard Wind 1, which are currently under construction.

Emmanuel Rollin, Director of Iberdrola France, expressed pride in the project’s completion and gratitude to the teams and regional supporters involved since 2012. The Saint-Brieuc project not only advances the energy transition but also supports employment in France.
