June 22 (Renewables Now) - Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said today it has received a 122-MW order in France, its 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 units of the V150-4.2 MW turbines, some of which 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 agreement.

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 that the financing for the project had been closed, adding that Sud Marne would be the largest onshore wind farm in France.

The project is managed by TTR Energy and is owned by Hexagon Renewable Energy SA, a platform created at the end of 2020 by TTR Energy and five institutional investors. At the time, the group said that Hexagon had acquired a portfolio of 19 wind projects in France totalling more than 770 MW.
