General Manager France

Skyborn France has its headquarters in Paris and an office in Nantes. The company was established in 2007 with the aim of developing offshore wind power along French coasts to contribute to France's goal of achieving 40% of renewable electricity by 2030 (against 20% at present) and 45 GW of offshore wind power by 2050 (against approximately 2 GW today).

With about 350,000 sq. m of coast line, France benefits from the 2nd-largest maritime area in Europe. The offshore wind industry could bring significant benefits to the national energy system, as well as economic and social benefits to regional communities through opening up new employment opportunities and technological developments.

Since 2012, seven fixed offshore wind projects have been awarded, their commissioning will last from 2022 to 2025. Several offshore wind tenders are currently open and should be awarded in 2023 – 2024.


Skyborn France is actively seeking opportunities to partner, acquire or finance other promising offshore wind projects with various industry players, ranging from local developers, energy distribution companies and transmission companies, and other stakeholders.


    Skyborn is committed to the development of offshore wind energy in France. Our activities are characterised by commitment, development and a long-term approach. Our goal is to work with authorities, political decision makers, the business community and local residents to implement profitable and sustainable projects that supply France with clean and affordable energy from offshore wind.
