H2air and Mirova inaugurated the Œillets wind farm in Fourcigny (Somme), in the presence of the Mayor of the municipality Joël Gilbert and alongside residents and project stakeholders.

The wind farm, with a total installed capacity of 8.8 MW, is composed of 4, 130 meters high Vestas turbines, operated by H2air GT. Ten companies from the Hauts-de-France region participated in the development and construction of the wind farm, with H2air focusing on local expertise and know-how. The wind turbines at Les Œillets have been operational since July 2021 and will produce the equivalent of the electricity consumption of 10,000 homes per year1. 

Financed by Mirova through the Mirova-Eurofideme 42 fund, its 4th equity investment fund in renewable energy infrastructure, this project represents the values carried by the mission-led company3 and its team dedicated to investing in energy transition infrastructure: innovation, value creation for the benefit of all, transformation.

“We are pleased to be working together again with H2Air whom we have known for 5 years now. Through the construction of renewable energy production capacity, we seek to act and invest locally, with the objective of creating value for all stakeholders and communities.” stated by Investment Director, Olena Reznik.

Thanks to its in-depth knowledge of the French and European renewable energy market and its extensive network of partners, Mirova has structured a solid investment platform dedicated to the energy transition, whose scope of intervention extends to the entire energy transition: storage, biogas, hydroelectricity, hydrogen and electric mobility, throughout Europe.
