EDF EN turns on 35MW in France

EDF Energies Nouvelles (EDF EN) has commissioned three new wind farms in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the south of France, with a total capacity of 34.7MW.

Two of the new plants, using 2.3MW Enercon turbines, are located in the Aude region. They are the 9.2MW Conilhac and the 11.5MW Plaine de l'Orbieu wind farms.

The latter is an extension to the 12MW Luc-sur-Orbieu project, built and operated by EDF EN since 2007.

Located in Aumelas town in the Herault region, the third development, the Vallee de l'Herault wind farm, consists of Vestas turbines with a capacity of 14MW.

Vallee de l'Herault is an extension of the Aumelas 1 and 2 plants of 48MW total capacity, commissioned in 2005 and 2009 and also operated by EDF.

By the end of June 2014, EDF EN was operating 235MW of wind in the Languedoc- Roussillon regionĀ out of 853MW installed capacity in France.
