Zwitserleven invests in a French wind farm

A good example of a green bond project financed by Zwitserleven is the wind farm at Perpignan in France. The energy producer raised a total of €1.4 billion with the loan. This money has now entirely been spent on wind farms, solar panel fields and a biogas project. 

What makes the design of the wind turbines in this park special is that they are virtually invisible to radar systems. As a result, they do not cause interference on radar images. Therefore, the project is not only green, but also ground-breaking and innovative.
