Wind turbine installation and service company Global Wind Service (GWS) has opened a business unit in Nantes, France.


GWS has a very strong growth ambition,” said ceo Michael Høj Olsen. “That, combined with the ambitious targets for French wind power development looking towards 2030 and even towards 2050 makes France a natural next step for us in terms of expansion. Not long ago President Emmanuel Macron announced that France intends to build around 40 GW of offshore wind by 2050. Adding to this comes onshore wind and need for re-powering of ageing turbines.

“All of this makes France an attractive market for both GWS and our clients, and it gives a solid baseline to invest in a local organisation to ensure close proximity to our clients and to further strengthen our relations.”
