Provence Grand Large (PGL) is an innovative floating wind pilot project of three 8.4 MW turbines, launched in 2011 and to be commissioned by 2023. It has been launched by EDF Renewables and jointly sponsored by Maple Power with the support of the European Commission, the French State, and the regional council. It is located in the Mediterranean Sea, 16 km off the coast, on a 100m deep site. Its main purpose is to test a promising new technology, known as tensioned leg platform (TLP). The electricity produced will be equivalent to the electricity consumption of 45,000 people.
