Siemens to build French onshore wind farm

Siemens Wind Power has won an order for a new onshore project in southwest France.

The new plant is owned by international independent renewable energy producer Futuren and will be built near the towns of Courant and Nachamps in the region of Nouvelle- Aquitaine.

It will consist of seven units of the Siemens direct-drive onshore wind turbine SWT-3.2-113. The contract includes service and maintenance for 21 years.

Once in operation, the wind farm will have a total capacity of 21 MW and commissioning is planned for 2018.

Thomas Richterich, Siemens Wind Power chief executive, said the project “strengthens our direct-drive technology in France”.à‚
