German project developer Energiequelle GmbH has sold a 15-MW wind park in France close to the Belgian border, which was switched on in the summer, to Swiss renewable energy company EKZ Renewables AG.
The Villers-le-Tourneur wind farm located in the Grand-Est region consists of five Nordex N-117 turbines which supply nearly 10,000 households. The facility will get a feed-in tariff from the French state for a period of 20 years.
Energiequelle acquired the project from German developer Green Energy 3000 GmbH and then developed and built the park.
Since the start of the year, the German renewables developer has sold three wind and solar parks in France and plans two more deals of a combined 27 MW next year. It is also building a 9.4-MW wind farm in Brittany in the northwest of the country with commissioning scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.
Following the acquisition of the Villers-le-Tourneur park, EKZ will own a portfolio of six wind farms in France with an installed capacity of 95 MW. The Zurich-based company operates solar, wind and hydropower plants in Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany and Italy.
