PARIS, Nov 16 (Reuters) - France’s Engie, Portugal’s EDP Renewables and other companies have formed a consortium to build a 25 megawatt (MW) offshore floating wind farm in Portugal, Engie said in a statement on Monday.

Norway’s Statoil said this month that it would invest about $236 million in a 30 MW, five-turbine floating wind farm off Scotland, the first of its kind.
