Boralex won three projects in France’s newest onshore wind auction, totaling over 62MW, from the Ministry for the Ecological Transition.
The projects have gained the required administrative approvals, allowing Boralex to receive a feed-in premium agreement for a period of 20 years from the date of commissioning, according to the Canadian firm.
In France, the company currently has a portfolio of wind and solar power projects totaling more than 1.5GW in various phases of construction.
It also operates 1.1 GW of wind and solar power plants in France and 2.5 GW globally.
Boralex said that it has secured 322MW of new projects as part of the Ministry’s nine wind power tenders.
Nicolas Wolff, vice president and general manager of Boralex Europe, said: “Boralex confirms its position as the leading independent producer of onshore wind power in France.
“We have demonstrated our competitiveness through our successive participations in CRE calls for tenders.
“A few days after the announcement of our partnership with Energy Infrastructure Partners, this is another success for which I would like to warmly congratulate our teams.”
