Oct. 13 (Bloomberg) — Alstom SA, a French power-plant
maker, and engineering company DCNS SA agreed to work together
to develop and bring to market floating wind-turbine technology.
The companies plan to produce an initial 6-megawatt
floating turbine by 2017 prior to installing pilot and then
commercial facilities, they said today in a joint statement.
The French Agency for Environment and Energy Management,
known as Ademe, will support the project with 6 million euros
($8 million), it said.
