Boralex Inc. ("Boralex" or the "Corporation") (TSX: BLX) announces the commercial commissioning of the 10 MW installed capacity Catésis wind farm located in France's Nord department.
The commissioning of this wind farm increases Boralex’s capacity to 951 MW in France and a total of 1,987 MW worldwide.
“We’re delighted with the commissioning of the Catésis wind farm which brings us that much closer to our target of 1 GW in France,” stated Nicolas Wolff, Vice-President and General Manager, Boralex Europe. He added, “Our continued expansion in France, especially in Hauts-de-France, an emerging region for our operations in the country, shows long-term potential. This would not be possible without our partners’ trust and the commitment of our teams.”
The 20-year feed-in premium agreement for the wind farm comprising five 2 MW-rated V100 Vestas wind turbines was entered into with Electricité de France (EDF) on June 1, 2019. The wind farm is expected to contribute €1.6 million or (C$2.4 million) to Boralex’s annualized EBITDA(A) with an annual electricity production estimated at over 32,700 MWh, which will avoid the emission of nearly 2,500 metric tons of CO2.
