Boralex Inc. (BLX) is commissioning three wind farms with a total capacity of 53 MW.

Boralex has an operating capacity of 1.1 GW in France and 2.5 GW worldwide.

The wind farms are located in the commune of Louville-la-Chenard, in the Eure-et-Loir department of the Centre-Val de Loire region of France.

These projects will repower two existing wind farms with six wind turbines each and the construction of an extension with seven turbines.

Together, the projects will produce around 138 GWh per year, sufficient to meet the energy needs of some 60,000 French households.

When looking at repowering the Remise de Réclainville wind farm back in May of this year, six Nordex N117 wind turbines were agreed upon. All with a 150-metre blade tip height.

The Bois des Fontaines wind farm will have seven Nordex N117 wind turbines, and its commissioned date was May 12.

Lastly, there is the repowering of the Evits et Josaphat wind farm, which started at the end of June, calling for six Nordex N117 wind turbines, repowering 12 MW from 12 MW.

“To date, we have repowered and upgraded every one of our sites that has reached the end of its service life,” said Nicolas Wolff, Vice President and General Manager of Boralex, Europe.

“Repowering is also advantageous for the host communities, as it ensures both the sustainability of the commitments made on initial commissions and the local production of cost-competitive green energy,” added Wolff.

For each turbine dismantled, 300 mof concrete and 40 metric tons of steel were collected and sent to the appropriate recycling channels. The wind turbines themselves will be sold on the second-hand market and given a second life to ensure limited materials end up in the waste.

The construction site of the wind project in the commune of Louville-la-Chenard has been checked regularly by an ecologist since project work began in July 2021.

The company continues to hold biodiversity protection measures, including 300 linear metres of hedges composed of native trees and shrubs planted in January 2022 to create habitats of interest for local wildlife species.

Boralex prides itself on providing affordable renewable energy, accessible to everyone for over the past 30 years. 

Boralex Inc. (BLX) is down 1.43 per cent, trading at C$42.78 at 1:16 pm EST.
