Les Vents de France (LVDF), the company set up by Germany's REpower Systems and Belgian Turbowinds to exploit the French market, is to open a factory in Belfort in Alsace, which will also become its head offices. LVDF is a 50-50 joint venture between the two turbine manufacturers. The facility was formerly used by Alstom to make generators and LVDF intends to use it to build REpower MD70/77 1.5 MW turbines. Production will begin some time in 2003.
