EDF Energies Nouvelles finalises the commissioning of 46 MW wind energy capacity in Greece

Continuing its expansion in the European wind power segment, EDF Energies Nouvelles (Paris:EEN) announces the commissioning of the wind farms of Fokida 2, back in September 2010, and Fokida 3, both with an installed wind turbines capacity of 23 MW.

Located in central Greece just a few kilometres apart, these two wind farms have ten wind turbines each, supplied by German manufacturer Enercon. Fokida 2 wind farm has been in service since September 2010.

Fokida 2 and Fokida 3 wind farm facilities are 97.8%-owned by the EDF Energies Nouvelles group via its Greek subsidiary EDF EN Greece.
