EDF Energies Nouvelles has commissioned the 20.7MW Corbieres Mediterranee wind farm in France.

The power project, which is located in the Aude department, includes nine turbines supplied by German turbine manufacturer Enercon, each with a generating capacity of 2.3MW.

EDF Energies Nouvelles chief operating officer (France) Yvon Andre said that the wind farm is expected to produce electricity equivalent to the consumption of more than 20,000 persons per year.

On 31 December 2010, the company had developed and built projects with 511.3MW in gross capacity in France.

With operations in Europe and North America, EDF Energies Nouvelles focuses on green electricity production.
