The Veulettes wind farm, which is located in the Seine-Maritime department, comprises four wind turbines, with 8 MW in total installed capacity. The 2-MW turbines were supplied by German manufacturer REpower.
Following the commissioning of three wind farms in Fiennes, Fierville and Sauveterre during the first half of the year, these two new facilities strengthen the Group´s positions in its wind energy home market. To date, EDF Energies Nouvelles has developed and built 431.1 MW in wind power in France, 112.2 MW of which has been sold to third parties.
Wind power is EDF Energies Nouvelles’ priority avenue of expansion. With wind farms in operation in Europe and the US, wind power currently accounts for around 90% of the Group’s total installed capacity. The 2002 acquisition of enXco, a leading wind energy player in the US, gave a considerable boost to our expansion in wind power.
