French power group GDF Suez SA (GSZ.FR) plans to partner with Portugal's EDP Renovaveis S/A (EDPR.LB) to bid for offshore wind farms in France, French business daily Les Echos reports Monday, citing unspecified sources.

After a first round of tender offers for four wind farms off the Northern and Western coast of France last year, the French government plans a second round for two farms, of 500 megawatts each, off the coast of Normandy by Le Treport and off the Western coastline of Noirmoutiers.

The bids must be submitted by Nov. 29.

A spokesman for GDF Suez declined to comment while no one at EDP Renovaveis was immediately available to comment.

EDP Renovaveis is a subsidiary of EDP Energias de Portugal SA (EDP.LB).
