Jeumont turbines set to go into production in Aude

The new Escales-Conilhac wind farm, west of Narbonne in the Aude département of south west France, is undergoing tests and is expected to go into production this month. The wind farm consists of ten French-built, direct-drive Jeumont J48 turbines each rated at 750 kW. This is only the second batch of Jeumont turbines to be installed. A first group of six turbines has been operating at Widehem on the English Channel coast of northern France since January 2001. Jeumont expects to install further turbines this year. Ten more will make up a second phase of Escales-Conilhac. Other wind farms scheduled to receive Jeumont turbines are: Plougras (Côtes d'Armor, 6 MW); Ploumoguer (5.25 MW) and Guimaec (9.75 MW), both in Finistère; and Montjoyer (13.5 MW) and Rochefort en Valdaine (6.75 MW) in Drôme.
