Estimate: €900,000+ to dismantle and dispose of one turbine

Montpellier, January 29, 2008


Following the consultation that you asked for, here is the estimate that we propose for the dismantling and demolition of wind turbines in the commune of Saint Etienne de Lugdares.

The dismantling and demolition require the presence on site of:

The recoverable iron remains in our possession.

The total for an operation of this scope comes to 900,000 Euros [c. US$1,350,000] before taxes. The company that we would give the work order to must be assured of timely payment for the operation. A deposit of 30% will be required to start.

Our price is for a wind turbine of 3 megawatts. If there are several turbines of the same type to dismantle at the same time, the price may be reduced because of the presence already of the 700-tonne crane.

This price applies for the year 2008 and concerns only those wind turbines situated in the commune near the city. Demolition of the concrete footings is not considered in this estimate. [emphasis added]

This estimate does not take into account expenses engendered by obligations imposed on us by the DDE [infrastructure department] for the route or for setting up the various materials on the site. These expenses would be in addition to the stated estimate.

We remain at your service, for more information, and we ask that you accept, sirs, our sincere greetings.
