GE Renewable Energy has announced it will provide 43 wind turbines and a full services agreement for two new wind projects in eastern France.

The Rougemont and Vaite wind farms are being developed by Opale Energies Naturelles on behalf of Velocita Energies, and they will install a combined 120MW over the next two years. The 2.75-120 is an uprated version of GE’s 2.5-120 machine, which is intended for the low wind speeds found in IEC Class III conditions. Construction will begin in the second half of 2016. Most of the turbines are scheduled to be installed late next year, with one additional phase of construction coming in late 2017. The first phase of commercial operations will begin in early 2017, and both wind farms will be fully operational in 2018.
