In the first half of 2019, FUTUREN commissioned two wind farms with a combined capacity of 20.1 MW and started construction works for a new 15.4 MW wind farm.
The Faydunes wind farm, located on the territory of the municipality of Saint-Affrique, in the Aveyron French department, comprises 6 wind turbines with a nominal capacity of 2.3 MW, for a total capacity of 13.8 MW. Commissioned in April 2019, this wind farm now generates renewable electricity, that will cover the yearly electricity needs of more than 11,000 households.
The Joncels wind farm, located on the territory of the town of the same name, in the Hérault French department, includes 7 wind turbines, for a total capacity of 6.3 MW. Commissioned in June 2019, it produces enough renewable electricity to meet the yearly electricity needs of nearly 6,000 households.

The Mottenberg wind project, located in the municipalities of Zimming and Narbéfontaine, in the Moselle French department, obtained all the necessary authorizations for its construction and operation. The project, currently under construction, will include 7 wind turbines with a nominal capacity of 2.2 MW, for a total capacity of 15.4 MW. As from its commissioning, this future wind farm will produce renewable electricity that will cover the yearly electricity needs of nearly 15,000 households.
