EolMed – France
Located in the Mediterranean Sea off Port-la-Nouvelle in southern France, EolMed is one of the country’s first offshore floating wind pilots. The project was selected following a call for tender by the French government and is part of its Investment for the Future programme.
EolMed consists of mounting three 10 MW wind turbines on floating steel platforms to produce nearly 110 million kWh per year, the equivalent annual electricity consumption of 50,000 inhabitants. Qair is involved in the development, financing and operation of the wind farm as part of a consortium, with commissioning set for mid-2024. The ambitious goal is to demonstrate the financial and technical viability of such projects and be a catalyst for the future of offshore wind.
