Vestas France Country Manager, Hugues Faivre, says: “We are very proud to continue our collaboration with H2Air. We expect that the versatility and reliability of our 4 MW platform will enable H2Air to optimise the energy output of their wind park once again”.
Turbine delivery and commissioning are planned for the fourth quarter of 2022.
