March 13 (Renewables Now) -ABO Wind AG is ready to initiate the construction of 41 MW of tariff-supported wind projects in France, the German developer said on Monday.
The five power plants will be installed across different departments, powered by a total of 16 turbines by Nordex (FRA:NDX1), Vestas Wind Systems (CPH:VWS) and Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (BME:SGRE). Nine of those machines will be switched on this year, while the remaining seven are planned to be commissioned in 2021.
Each of the Cotes-d'Armor, Mayenne and Loiret departments will become home of one of ABO Wind’s projects and the Charente department will accommodate two of the proposed power plants. The construction of some schemes has already commenced.
The German firm will install the capacity through its Toulouse-based subsidiary ABO Wind SARL. It noted that since 2004 it has hooked to the grid more than 300 MW of wind farms in France, which is considered as its second most important market after Germany.
ABO Wind is currently developing more than 1 GW of wind and solar projects in France.
