Total Quadran , a subsidiary of Total, has announced that it has acquired 100 per cent of Global Wind Power France , with a 1250MW portfolio of onshore wind projects. Total Quadran is a renewable developer and producer based in France.

Phillipe Sauquet, President of Gas, Renewables, and Power at Total, said: “Following Vents d’Oc’ acquisition in 2019, this new investment demonstrates Total’s commitment to expand in all types of renewable energy while contributing to France’s energy transition goals. It strengthens Total Quadran’s footprint, adding to its existing portfolio of nearly 1000MW of installed and operating capacity, including over 500MW of onshore wind, and confirms its ambition to be one of the main players on France’s renewables market.”

GWP’s teams will join Total Quadran.

The Total group has also recently announced that it has signed an agreement with the developer Simply Blue Energy to acquire an 80 per cent stake in the floating wind project Erebus, located in the Celtic Sea off Wales. The project will have a capacity of 96MW and will be installed in an area with a water depth of 70m.
