Futuren orders seven wind turbines for 21MW project in France

CTBR Staff Writer Published 25 August 2016

Futuren, an independent producer of renewable energy, is actively pursuing the development of its portfolio, in line with its targets.

The Group concluded a turbine supply agreement for the purchase of 7 wind turbines for the Courant-Nachamps project, located on the territory of the Courant and Nachamps municipalities, in the Charente-Maritime department, in France.

The contract also includes associated maintenance services, securing the costs of maintenance over fifteen years.

Besides, Futuren currently carries on with the construction of two wind farms in France for a cumulative capacity of 31 MW, to be commissioned in the coming months. After ordering the turbines and securing a long-term bank loan, the Group will start the construction works for the Courant-Nachamps project in 2017, the commissioning being expected in the beginning of 2018.

The selected turbine model will deliver a unit capacity of 3 MW, bringing the total installed capacity of the wind farm to 21 MW. Once in operation, the future wind farm will generate green electricity covering the domestic electricity needs of almost 24,000 households each year.
