The French sector for offshore wind turbines is going through a rough time. Several pilot projects face major delays, possibly even up to one year, states French utility EDF to industry site Windpower Monthly.
The projects concerned are St-Nazaire (480 MW), Fecamp (498 MW), and Courseulles-Sur-Mer (450 MW), which are now being postponed because of legal issues. The projects have been met with a wave of complaints which in part constitute concerns about negative effects on the environment, fishery, and tourism, and in part are concerns that the projects are located too close to the historic beaches in Normandy where D-Day took place during World War II.
