Wind Market France: Start Of Construction For Further Energiequelle Wind Farm

Saint-Morand / France - Energiequelle GmbH has started the construction of the Saint Morand wind farm in France together with its French subsidiary P&T Technologie.

The project comprises four Enercon E-103 turbines, each with a capacity of 2.35 megawatts (MW) and a total output of 9.4 MW. The site is located in Brittany in the north-west of France, a good 40 kilometres south-east of Rennes. The groundbreaking ceremony for the road construction took place a few weeks ago, and construction work on the foundation is then scheduled to follow in March 2022. Commissioning is planned for the first quarter of 2023.

The wind project has been successfully guided through an appeal process by P&T over the past two years and was brought to a resilient approval in March 2021.

Saint-Morand is the third Energiequelle wind farm in France whose construction started this year. "With the construction sites in Bourbriac and Trévé-Loudéac, a total of 36 MW are currently under construction in France," said the project managers Uta Kanira and Pierre Duchalais from Energiequelle, pleased with the positive development.

Energiequelle GmbH has been active internationally since 1997 as a project developer and operator of wind energy, biomass and photovoltaic plants as well as transformer stations and storage facilities. To date, the company has installed plants with a capacity of more than 240 MW in the wind and solar sectors in France and has a well-filled project pipeline as well as an extensive network of cooperation partners. With over 300 employees and more than 750 installed plants with a total capacity of around 1,400 MW, Energiequelle is one of the leading companies in the industry.
