Nordex will supply nine N117 3.6MW turbines to the two projects, with five going to the Espiers site and four delivered to the Guilleville development, which will also have a single N100 3.3MW machine installed.

The projects are located around 100 kilometres south of Paris, Nordex said.

"We view this signing as the commencement of a closer partnership with EDF Energies Nouvelle, which is planning to expand its international wind power activities," said Nordex chief sales officer Patxi Landa.

EDF EN is making major strides in growing its wind base. The developer aims to accelerate growth in its domestic market, adding 5-6GW of renewable capacity by 2030.

In May 2017, EDF EN acquired a majority share in French developer Futuren, including its 389MW operating portfolio. Futuren also operated a further 257MW for third parties and had 400MW under development.
