EDF Renewables and developer Windvision have been successful with a bid for a 226MW wind project in the Ardennes department in the latest French onshore wind tender, which the utility claims is the “most powerful” wind project on land in France yet.

The €250m ($302m) Mont de Quatre Faux wind project is located about 15 kilometres south of the town of Rethel, and is slated to stretch across seven municipalities in the eastern French region.
