The French arm of Spanish utility Endesa commissioned its first wind power plant in France last month. The 10 MW facility of Nordex 2.5 MW turbines at Lehaucourt, in the northerly Aisne département, was developed by local company Espace Eolien Développement. Endesa cites France as one of its target markets for wind power. The company aims to have 200 MW running by 2010. Next in line are a 10 MW plant at Ambon in Brittany and another 10 MW at Les Vents de Cernon in the Marne, both due for completion in 2008. Endesa France is owned 65% by the Spanish utility.
