April 26 (Renewables Now) - UK-based Renewable Energy Systems Ltd (RES) has officially opened the 14-MW Bricqueville wind farm in northwestern France, which was last year bought by Irish green asset manager NTR Plc.
The project was developed by RES, which also took care of its construction and will operate and maintain the wind farm on behalf of NTR. Following its completion, the UK firm will have 600 MW of assets under management in France, it said on Thursday.
Located in Calvados department, Normandy region, the wind park uses four Vestas V100 turbines of 2.2 MW each and is expected to generate 18 GWh of electricity annually. Its output will be enough to supply about 4,000 homes per year while saving over 9,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
NTR acquired the Bricqueville project in December 2018. The transaction was the fourth one between the Irish firm’s second sustainable infrastructure fund NTR Renewable Energy Income Fund II and RES.
