Boralex has commissioned the Moulins du Lohan wind farm, located in the commune of Forges de Lanouée, in the Morbihan department of Brittany. With this commissioning, Boralex has reached 1.2 GW of installed capacity in France and crossed the milestone of 3 GW worldwide.

The 65 MW Moulins du Lohan wind farm consits of 17 Vestas V126 with a unit capacity of 3.8 MW. The wind farm will produce enough power to supply 60,000 French residents. Brittany currently still imports 85% of its electricity, half of which is fossil-fuel-based. But the region also has the second-largest wind energy resource in France. It has indicated its willingness to help address the local energy transition, including its adoption of the 2010 Pacte Électrique Breton.

But Nicolas Wolff, Executive Vice President and General Manager Europe, at Boralex, also points out the problems: “The Moulins du Lohan wind farm project reflects the challenges of deploying renewable energy in France. At each stage of development, we were able to demonstrate that the project was sound, yet it still took more than 10 years to see it through to fruition. There is a need to simplify the procedures governing the development of renewable energy if the objectives of France’s multi-year energy program, the PPE, are to be met. Renewables are key to decarbonizing our society. That principle is central to the new law aimed at accelerating the deployment of renewable energies, for which we have high expectations.”

“Once authorization is granted, renewable energies have the advantage of rapid deployment, meaning that they can play a strategic role in the implementation of new green, competitive sources of energy production. We were able to install the Moulins du Lohan wind farm in record time in the midst of an energy crisis and for that my thanks go to the Boralex teams and other stakeholders, especially RTE, who all joined forces to get this asset installed,” added Nicolas Wolff.
