Senvion SE has concluded three contracts totalling 32.5 megawatts (MW) with three new customers for wind farm projects in France, including Boralex, Neoen and Isac-Watts.
Senvion will equip the Calmont, Villacerf and Severac-Guenrouët wind farms with a total of 16 turbines from its two-megawatt portfolio that will produce enough electricity to power more than 32,500 households* in France.
