EDF, Iberdrola Beat GDF Suez in French Offshore Wind Tender

Electricite de France SA and partners including turbine maker Alstom SA won a French government tender to build three offshore wind farms, and Iberdrola SA got one, while GDF Suez SA was left empty-handed.

EDF, Danish utility Dong Energy A/S, and Alstom were picked to build 1,428 megawatts of wind power at three sites off the coasts of Brittany and Normandy, the government said today. Spanish power company Iberdrola and U.K. group RES will erect a 500-megawatt farm with Areva SA’s turbines off the Saint-Brieuc shore in Brittany, though its offer was higher than Paris-based EDF’s on that site, France said.
