RWE is starting construction on three new onshore wind farms in France. Together with the expansion of the existing Epine Marie Madeleine wind farms, the new Coupru and Allerey plants will have a total installed capacity of 50MW.
The Epine Marie Madeleine wind farm, which is to be expanded by 23MW, is located in the Hauts-de-France region in the north of France. After completion, the wind farm will be comprised of a total of seven Nordex turbines.
Construction work has commenced at the Allerey wind farm in eastern France. Located around 60 kilometres west of Dijon in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, RWE is erecting five Nordex turbines with a total capacity of 15MW at the site. They are due to be commissioned in 2022.
For the Coupru wind farm (12 MW), also located in the Hauts-de-France region, five Nordex wind turbines with a nominal capacity of 2.4MW each are being erected. The French team has already started preparation work on site. The project is a joint venture with TotalEnergies (50%). Connection to the grid is planned for 2022.
