Four Enercon turbines with a total output of 9.4 MW to be built in Saint-Morand
St. Morand/France, 29 November 2021. Construction of the Saint-Morand wind farm in France began at the end of October. Energiequelle GmbH, together with its subsidiary P&T Technologie, is constructing four Enercon E-103 turbines, each with an output of 2.35 MW and a hub height of 108 metres. The wind farm is located in Brittany in the north-west of France, a good 40 kilometres south-east of Rennes.
The project was successfully guided through an objection procedure by P&T over the last two years and was brought to full approval in March 2021. The first groundbreaking ceremony for road construction took place a few weeks ago, and construction work will then be completed on the foundation in March 2022. Commissioning is planned for the first quarter of 2023.
Uta Kanira and Pierre Duchalais, who are responsible for this year’s projects in France for Energiequelle, are pleased with the positive development: “Saint-Morand is already the third wind farm to celebrate its start of construction this year. With the construction sites in Bourbriac and Trévé-Loudéac, a total of 36 MW are currently under construction in France.”
To date, Energiequelle has installed more than 240 MW in the wind and solar sectors in France and has a solid project pipeline and a large network of cooperation partners. Energiequelle is also an established operator on the French, German and Finnish markets.
