EDF Energies Nouvelles Receives Order for 184 Wind Turbines

EDF Energies Nouvelles is continuing its expansion program in the U.S. with orders for 184 wind turbines representing 276 megawatts (MW). The turbines, which have a unit capacity of 1.5 MW, will be supplied by the General Electric (GE) Wind, an established partner to enXco, EDF Energies Nouvelles’s subsidiary in the U.S.

Fifty turbines (representing 75 MW) will be delivered in 2007, with the remaining 134 (representing 201 MW) following in 2008. These turbines will be used in the construction of projects in the U.S. Midwest, one of the regions where enXco is experiencing growth. This order has been placed under framework agreements signed by EDF Energies Nouvelles with the world’s leading manufacturers to supply the company with wind turbines around the world. “Extension of the renewable energy production tax credit until the end of 2008 will not fail to stimulate the wind power market and demand for turbines,” said David Corchia, Chief Executive Officer of EDF Energies Nouvelles. “We are pleased to have a long-established collaboration with GE Wind. Signing this new contract forms part of our ambitious expansion plan in the fast-growing U.S. market,” he added.
