The Nordex Group has signed what it calls two “promising” wind power contracts with French utility EDF Energies Nouvelles.
EDF has ordered a total of 10 turbines with a combined output of around 36 MW. The turbines are for the Espiers and Guilleville wind farms, which are being built roughly 100 kilometers south of Paris.
“We view this signing as the commencement of a closer partnership with EDF Energies Nouvelles, which is planning to expand its international wind power activities,” says Patxi Landa, chief sales officer of Nordex SE. “With our products, we will be able to support the company in achieving this goal efficiently and on a cost-optimized basis.”
The Espiers project comprises five N117/3600 turbines, while Guilleville will have four N117/3600 turbines and one N100/3300 turbine.
The contract also includes technical services for the wind farms. Nordex says it operates a service station in the immediate vicinity of both projects.
