The wind farm Fresnes en Saulnois is located in “la Moselle,” a flat region in the east of France. Built on a large, level area in front of a broad valley, the site is perfect for a wind farm due to the perpetual strong winds. The project can generate enough electricity for 11,500 inhabitants. Financing was provided by Banco Commercial Portugues (BCP) and Banco Millenium Investimento. Today, the shareholder is Prime Renewables Gmbh. RP Global France is responsible for commercial and technical operations.
Fresnes en Saulnois started its commercial operation in January 2009.
