English term or phrase: greenfield projects
"[The financial product] provides long-term cash flow-based financings of greenfield projects, refinancings and restructurings, leveraged buy-outs as well as dedicated financing solutions for media and telecommunication companies".

projets entièrement nouveaux
Explanation:
Ref UE bilingue :
This requires an increase of around 1,500kt per year. Expansion of capacity comes either in the form of capacity "creep" through de-bottlenecking, through "brownfield" expansion at existing sites or through new, so called "greenfield" projects.

L'extension de capacité peut être réalisée soit sous forme d'extension "rampante" de capacité (capacity "creep") en supprimant les goulets d'étranglement, soit sous forme d'investissements dans des installations existantes (brownfield) ou des installations entièrement nouvelles (greenfield).

Glossaire OCDE :
Greenfield projects installation sur site vierge ; projets de création d' établissements ; projets entièrement nouveaux

Today, the term Greenfield is not restricted to software domain. Examples of greenfield projects are new factories, power plants, airports which are built from scratch on greenfield land. Those facilities which are modified/upgraded are called Brownfield projects (often the pre-existing site/facilities are contaminated/polluted.)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Merci Stéphanie. Je ne trouvais rien de plus "spécialisé/spécifique" et il n'apparaissait pas non plus comme usité tel quel en anglais... Je pensais aussi à "projets de création".
