Work is due to start this spring or summer on construction of a wind farm of 12 turbines at Goulien in Brittany. The project won a power purchase contract under the second round of France's Eole 2005 programme (Windpower Monthly, December 1997). The turbines are being supplied by Britain's Wind Energy Group, which is developing the wind plant jointly with Cegelec. WEG, a wholly owned subsidiary of UK construction giant Taylor Woodrow, will be using the 500 kW version its two-bladed MS3 machine. It expects the wind farm to be operational before 1999.
