A question concerning the new TGV Océane for the Paris to Bordeaux
and Rennes High Speed Rail.

This article says that there will be 40 TGV Océane until 2019:

The fleet of 40 dual-voltage (25kV 50Hz ac/1.5kV dc) double-deck trains - dubbed TGV Océane by SNCF - were ordered in March 2012 using a €1.2bn option from a contract awarded to Alstom in 2007.

Those are TGV sets No. 851 à 865 and 867 à 891 (wikipedia)

Furthermore it says:

The new trains will be supplemented on Atlantique services by 24 existing Duplex trains, which will be refurbished for their new role.

What are the No of the 24 existing Duplex trains?

So it will be 40+24 = 64 TGV Océane?
How many of the 24 trains have been refurbished already?

Certainly there was talk of 24 Duplex reformed with the new interior Océane, but in this page it says that there are 23. It may be missing 1 to reform, but I think not, that will be 23. They do not have ERTMS, which is strange, that's why they can not exceed 300 (TVM 300).
The numbers are: 244 to 249 and 251 to 267.

The numbers of the Océane are from 851 to 906 (55 trains, the 866 does not exist because it is the reserve locomotive, 40 of the initial order although 15 were subsequently added due to the threat of closing the factory in Belfort to do Intercités Bordeaux-Marseille) 16 in july and 22 at the end of 2017.

The Euroduplex Océane circulate normally from Paris to Bordeaux and Hendaye (LGV SEA, Sud Europe Atlantique), on the other hand, from Paris to Brittany and Loire (LGV BPL, Bretagne Pays de la Loire) circulate the Atlantique of a single floor (there will be 53 trains with interior Lacroix, the rest will cause low soon), the 23 Duplex, and 13 Duplex DASYE to take advantage of the ERTMS.
DASYE: 701 to 705, 737 to 743 and 749.
