Hamburg’s Repower Systems is to provide 23 turbines for two French wind farms with a combined capacity of more than 47 MW.

GDF Suez subsidiary La Compagnie du Vent is building the wind farms in Burgundy and says they mark “the most important project that our company has ever built in France”.

The turbines, which are100 metres high and have a nominal output of 2.05 MW, will be delivered next summer, with the wind farms set for commissioning in December 2012.

Once operational, the wind farms will help La Compagnie du Vent operate 300 MW of capacity, of which 80 MW is generated by REpower turbines.
