Boralex has announced that four of its projects totalling 70.4 MW have been selected in the latest calls for tenders conducted by the Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition of France.

The solar projects – Peyrolles en Provence (15.4 MW), in the department of Bouches-du-Rhône, and La Clé des Champs (12.5 MW), in Haute-Loire – have been selected in the seventh round of the call for tenders for the construction and operation of ground-mounted solar energy production facilities. In addition, two wind farm projects – Mont de Bézard II (25.2 MW) in the department of Marne, and Extension Seuil de Bapaume (17.3 MW) in Pas-de-Calais – have been selected in the fifth round of the national call for tenders for onshore wind farm projects.

“This success confirms that Boralex develops competitive projects, but also points out the vitality of solar power, a sector for which we have ambitious goals in France and in North America,” said Nicolas Wolff, Vice President and General Manager of Boralex, Europe. “For 20 years we have made a conscious effort to situate our projects locally so that they promote jobs and economic benefits while allowing communities to fully engage with their objectives for the energy transition.”

The projects have received the necessary administrative authorisations and will enable it to receive a feed-in premium agreement over a period of 20 years from the date of commissioning. The company further announced that it has already secured more than 100 MW in new projects under the 2019 wind power calls for tenders.

The firm currently has a portfolio of more than 1,000 MW in wind and solar power projects in France, at various stages of development. The Corporation also has 978 MW in wind, solar and thermal power sites operating in France and 2,040 MW around the world.
