Senvion installs the tallest wind turbines in France

Hamburg/Courbevoie: Senvion installs the tallest wind turbines in France for BayWa r.e. With a tip height of 200 metres, the Senvion 3.0M122 wind turbines are currently being installed in the wind farm Les Landes, located in the French department of Haute Vienne.

Olivier Perot, Managing Director of Senvion Europe South, states: "Thanks to its flexible and modular wind turbines portfolio, Senvion is capable to offer BayWa r.e. the most suitable and high-performing wind turbine for the features of this wind farm. We are proud to contribute to the success of this project with the tallest wind turbines in France, which is another milestone for the country’s successful energy transition."

"It is a great satisfaction to participate in the construction of the tallest wind turbines in France”, says Can Nalbantoglu, Managing Director of BayWa r.e France SAS. "We decided to install wind turbines with such a dimension in order to capture stronger and steadier wind in order to optimize production. In total, the expected electricity production for this wind farm is more than 50 GWh per year, the equivalent of the electricity consumption of 10,000 households."

With an installed capacity of 18 megawatts (MW), the wind farm will save 11,500 metric tons of CO2 emissions every year.

Senvion’s recent projects which include the tallest wind turbines in France, the first offshore wind farm in the Italian Mediterranean Sea as well as the installation of the longest blade in Portugal, demonstrate its capability to be an innovative solutions provider for its customers in the wind industry.
