Burgeoning French Offshore Wind Industry Supported by Cargostore

The renewable energy sector is increasing exponentially in France with impressive targets set by the government across the board. Therefore as a leading supplier of DNV 2.7-1 offshore containers we are expanding our presence in the region to support the growing French offshore wind market.  There is a target of 40GW of capacity by 2050 for offshore wind, through the creation of 50 new offshore wind farms which should account for 20% of France’s electricity consumption.

With projects already underway including the Fécamp wind farm (500MW), the Courseulles sur Mer wind farm (448MW) and the Saint Nazaire wind farm (480-750MW), which we recently supplied several units to, the process is already underway.
To reinforce our relationships with the regional supply chain, Sans Unkles and Dennis Schouweanaar from our Offshore Team alongside CEO Andrew Hart exhibited at the Seanergy conference in Normandy, France on the 15th June 2022.

Due to the exhibition’s focus on renewable energy alongside the targets set by the government, it was an important date in the diary for us to attend to meet new prospects and catch up with suppliers and clients in the French offshore wind industry.

Cargostore has supported numerous projects across Europe and have depots in the Netherlands in Eemshaven, Den Helder, Rotterdam and IJmuiden as well as in Germany in Sassnitz, Emden and Cuxhaven. With our network of depots and trusted freight forwarding partners we are able to deliver containers to any location across Europe.

On the first day the team welcomed delegates onto our signature green and grey stand where we showcased one of our products, the 4ft DNV Basket.
Day two was the last day of the exhibition and we organised to have some revitalising green juice to hand out on the stand which went down a treat, particularly for those with a sore head from the day before!
Offshore Director Sans Unkles said, Europe has been a key location for Cargostore for many years and we are keen to expand our presence in France to support their targets for a greener future through renewable energy.”
