Chinese turbine maker Envision Energy said it has commissioned its 40-MW Entre Tille et Venelle wind farm, located in the French region of Burgundy-Franche-Comte, and announced another project in France.
The group developed Entre Tille et Venelle through its French subsidiary Velocita Energies. With 16 units of EN131-2.5MW turbines installed, the project represents the first deployment of Envision’s hardware in France.
The company said it has designed and adapted the turbines specifically for the Burgundy-Franche-Comte region and spaced them more than 900 metres (2,953 ft) from any home, which is nearly twice the 500-metre regulatory distance.
The Entre Tille and Venelle wind farm is set to generate 107 GWh of power per year, or enough to meet annual electricity needs of 50,000 people.
The company did not give details on the new wind project it plans in France, other than saying that it will also use Envision turbines.
