Siemens has received an order to provide new onshore wind turbines for a project owned by International independent renewable energy producer, Futuren, in the southwest of France. 

"We are proud to continue our collaboration with the Futuren Group as this international company is an important player in the French renewable market,” states Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore at Siemens Wind Power.

The order consists of seven units of Siemen’s direct-drive onshore wind turbine SWT-3.2-113. Siemens has also agreed to maintain and service the project over a period of 21 years. 

A successful first implementation in the Somme department (North of France) with direct-drive wind turbines, has convinced us to make the same choice once again,” says Fady Khallouf, CEO of Futuren. “Based on a long-term balanced industrial relationship with Siemens, we are today ordering wind turbines of the same type for our future wind farm in the Charente-Maritime department (south-west of France).”
