To the start the summer with some strongly positive news, Vestas Mediterranean has announced that TTR Energy placed a 122 megawatts (MW) order for the Sud Marne wind park. It is located in Marne, France. The contract is to secure the transport, supply, and installation of 30 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines. Some of the installations will be operating immediately, as delivered — in 4.0 MW operating mode. Vestas also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
“We are really proud of partnering with TTR Energy for Vestas’ largest order ever received in France. We expect that the reliability and high competitiveness of our 4 MW platform will contribute significantly to increase the yearly energy production of the wind park and optimise our customer’s business case,” says Vestas France Country Manager, Hugues Faivre.
The wind turbine delivery is supposed to take place by the 2nd quarter of 2022, and commissioning is scheduled the 4th quarter of 2022.
The first installation of a Vestas turbine in France was back in 1991. Since then, the company has led the country’s wind industry, with over 5.8 gigawatts (GW) of wind capacity installed via more than 2,300 wind turbines. These numbers position the company as the main contributor to the expansion of wind energy in France, with a 30 percent cumulative market share.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
