Canadian firm Boralex expands French portfolio

Following the completion of a financing deal worth almost EUR 190 million in July, Canada's Boralex is expanding its French wind power portfolio. The company's French subsidiary recently bought an 8 MW project at Plouguin, in Brittany, from French wind project developer VSB Energies Nouvelles. The plant, in which Boralex is investing some EUR 11.8 million, comprises four Enercon E66 2 MW wind turbines from Germany. It is slated for commissioning in November, when the company also expects to complete its 39 MW Ally-Mercoeur installation, France's biggest wind project to date, and the 18 MW Cham de Cham Longe plant (Windpower Monthly, April 2005). This will bring Boralex's installed capacity in France to around 90 MW out of its total wind capacity of 315 MW worldwide.
