GE makes Waves with EDF Deal

18 May 2015
GE is preparing to complete the delivery of an electrical conversion system for the Paimpol- Bréhat tidal project of the coast of Brittany, France. GE Power Conversion has been chosen to provide the complete system, both subsea and onshore for the array, developed by EDF. The array is set for operation by the end of 2015. GE Power Conversion is working with EDF to finalise the electrical conversion system by summer 2015. Relevant testing is currently taking place, prior to the installation of the system. Two OpenHydro 16-metre turbines will be connected to a common subsea converter that will transform the current to HVDC to provide 1MW of electricity. The enclosure for the subsea converter is 9m in length, 5m in width and 4m in height, while the tidal turbine measures 16m in diameter. The turbine is provided by OpenHydro, part of the DCNS Group. GE will deliver the converter to Brest where it will be installed by DCNS on the foundation designed by OpenHydro, which supports both the convertor and the 16-metre turbine.
