EDF Energies Nouvelles, the dedicated renewables arm of France's state-run utility Electricité de France, recently inaugurated one of the largest wind power plants in Greece. The 30 MW installation at Profitas Illias, near Nafplio in the northeast Peloponnese, consists of ten Vestas V90-3 MW turbines. It was first developed by the renewable energy division of the Greek company Ktistor, which EDF Energies Nouvelles bought in August 2005. EDF Energies Nouvelles has brought a total of 75.35 MW into operation in Greece over the past 12 months, including 36 MW at Didimon, also in the Peloponnese and 9.35 MW at Rovas on Crete. The company has a further 24 MW under construction at Perdikovouni in the Viotia region northwest of Athens, scheduled for completion late 2007.
