  • Alstom, together with GDF SUEZ, has been chosen by the Prime Minister to supply equipment for a tidal energy pilot farm at Raz Blanchard, west of the Cotentin peninsula (Manche), following the findings of a study conducted by the ADEME. This choice was made as part of the “Programme des Investissements d’Avenir,” for which the French Government initiated a Call for Expressions of Interest (CEI) back in September 2013. Four Oceade 18 – 1.4MW tidal turbines, as well as an Alstom electrical subsea hub will be installed at this high-potential tidal site. The 5.6 MW sea-based project is slated to begin in 2017 and is expected to operate for a period of 20 years.
