Eole-RES completes Pyrenees 10.5 MW project

Google Translate

The Anglo-French consortium Eole-RES has completed its 10.5 MW Opoul-Périllos wind farm, the first to be built in the département of Pyrenees-Orientales. According to Eole-RES, the wind farm was built in record time: the construction work took just three months and the six Vestas 1.75 MW turbines were assembled in three weeks, despite several days being lost, ironically, to high winds. A 13 kilometre underground cable (passing through two tunnels drilled under the A9 coastal motorway) had to be laid to connect the wind farm to the grid. Eole-RES already has one other wind farm operating in France, the 20.8 MW Souleilla-Corbières development in neighbouring Aude département.
