GDF Suez, the French energy group, announced Thursday the development of two new wind farms in Eastern Europe, one based in Romania (48 MW) and the other located in Poland (51 MW).

In Poland, the Pagow park will double the wind capacity of the Group, after the parks of Jarogniew-Moltowo (20 MW) and Wartkowo (30 MW) opened in 2011, and continue its development in renewable energy.

In Romania, the Gemenele wind farm will be commissioned in 2012. It marks the Group’s entry in electricity generation in Romania, and shows at the same time the Romanian potential in renewable energy.

“The development of wind projects of the Group in Romania and Poland demonstrates the will to further diversify the energy mix of GDF Suez and further integration in the growth markets by leveraging the best expertise and technical synergies of the Group” said Gerard Mestrallet, CEO of GDF Suez.

GDF Suez intends to strengthen renewables in its energy mix in Europe to achieve its goal of increasing renewable installed capacity of the Group of 50% by 2015 compared to 2009.
