June 22 (Renewables Now) – Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A / S (CPH: VWS) today announced that it has received a 122 MW order in France, the largest ever in the country.
TTR Energy, a renewable energy investor with a team based in France and Belgium, has ordered Vestas turbines for the 122 MW Sud Marne wind project located in the Marne department.
The wind farm will consist of 30 V150-4.2 MW turbine units, some of which will be in 4.0 MW operating mode.
Under the contract, Vestas will transport, supply and install the turbines. Delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2022 and commissioning for the fourth quarter of the same year. The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 service contract.
Vestas said that since 1991 it has installed over 5.8 GW of wind capacity and over 2,300 wind turbines in France.
Earlier this month, TTR Energy announced the close of financing for the project, adding that Sud Marne would be the largest onshore wind farm in France.
The project is managed by TTR Energy and belongs to Hexagon Renewable Energy SA, a platform created at the end of 2020 by TTR Energy and five institutional investors. At the time, the group indicated that Hexagon had acquired a portfolio of 19 wind projects in France totaling more than 770 MW.
