GE Wind Energy has announced that it will be supplying 30 turbines for two new projects in northern France totalling 45 MW. Five of the company's 1.5 MW turbines will be installed at Sortosville-en-Beaumont on the west coast of the Cotentin peninsula in Normandy. The wind farm station is expected to be complete in June. The other project is La Haute Lys in Nord Pas-de-Calais, where 25 of GE's 1.5 MW turbines are to be distributed in four local authority areas: Fauquembergues, Renty-Audincthun, Reclinghem and Vincly. The single project will effectively be the largest wind station in France. It is being developed by electrical contractor Cegelec and consultants Espace Eolien Développement for owners Sechilienne-Sidec, part of the Air Liquide Group. The station is expected to be operating by the end of the year.
