Wind farmThe portfolio consists of one asset under construction, “Mazeray” and two assets already in operation: “Coudrays” and “Bois Ballay”. All three assets were developed by a leading wind turbine manufacturer, Nordex. Nordex also provides turbines to many markets globally, including Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Scandinavia, China and the US.

Joost Bergsma, CEO of the fund said: “This acquisition complements our previous wind farm acquisitions in Ireland, the UK and France, and maintains our momentum towards establishing a significant presence in the French wind energy sector.”
