EDF Energies Nouvelles Announces the Order Of 150MW of Turbines From REpower

PARIS, FRANCE - EDF Energies Nouvelles continues its expansion programme in the United States with orders for 75 wind turbines for 2008. This new order follows a series of orders undertaken for the U.S., including the one announced last March, for a capacity of 276MW from GE Wind.

The turbines, which have a unit capacity of 2MW, will be supplied by the German company REpower, one of EDF ENÂ’s privileged supplier in Europe and in the USA. The order consists of the confirmation of an option booked in 2006 for 38MW (19 turbines) and of a new contract for 112MW (56 turbines), thus a total amount of 150MW. The turbines will be delivered in 2008.

“We have an ambitious development plan throughout the US continent, backed by our demonstrated ability to secure our supply in turbines. We are very pleased to pursue a partnership started last year in the U.S. with REpower” declared David Corchia, Chief Executive Officer of EDF Energies Nouvelles.
