A new Watt balance project is now in progress at the Bureau National de Metrologie (BNM), Paris, France. In this paper, the general configuration and the main parts of the experimental setup currently in development are presented. The aim is to contribute to the international effort in monitoring the kilogram toward a new definition of the mass unit with a relative accuracy of 10-8 or better.
