EDF Energies Nouvelles, the renewables arm of French utility EDF, has commissioned the 112 MW Arada wind farm in Portugal, comprising four smaller wind plant with a single connection point to the electricity grid. Located in central Portugal, the facility was commissioned gradually during 2008 and is now fully operational. It is equipped with 56 Enercon 2 MW turbines. Project financing of EUR 175 million was agreed in 2007. The wind farm is wholly owned by EDF Energies Nouvelles and will help consolidate the company's position as the sixth-largest wind power provider in Portugal. The company is part owner of one of the largest wind farms in Europe, Portugal's 240 MW Ventominho wind farm, which was completed last year with Spanish utility Endesa.
