EDF Energies Nouvelles Commissions 26MW Wind Farm in UK

EDF Energies Nouvelles has announced the commissioning of the Bicker wind farm in the Fenlands, UK. The new 26MW wind farm is the sixth project completed by the group in this region of northeast England.

The Bicker wind farm in Lincolnshire comprises 13 wind turbines, each rated at 2MW. These wind turbines were supplied by German manufacturer REpower.

Complementing the Glassmoor, Deeping, Red House, Red Tile and Walkway wind farms already in service, the new project represents the latest phase of the construction program launched in 2005, comprising over 100MW of capacity in the Fenlands.

The Bicker wind farm is owned equally by EDF Energies Nouvelles and EDF Energy via EDF Energy Renewables. This joint venture was set up in June 2008 to fulfill their joint ambitions in green electricity generation in the UK. Including the Bicker wind farm, EDF Energies Nouvelles and EDF Energy now own a combined total of 147.4MW of capacity in service in the UK.
