TERRE ET LAC provided project management support for the first wind park built by its client, Langa. We look back at a project that has stretched back over 10 years during which TERRE ET LAC coordinated all the major stakeholders and informed public opinion to win its acceptance. Today, the park is majestic.

It blends well into the landscape and will produce clean, carbon-free energy for the next 20 to 25 years. In just 6 months, the energy debt needed to make wind turbines for transport and the construction of the park will be completely refunded. It is an ethical and sustainable project that was widely applauded at a great inauguration!

Besides the technical feat of transporting 35 m long blades along the narrow roads of the Aggly gorges (see the video showing the transportation by wide-load, escorted convoy), it was necessary to develop hitherto inaccessible land and rugged terrain to build the wind park’s infrastructure. The site is now also open to ramblers, mountain bikers and visitors. Even hunters are back now that the year’s work no longer disturbs their habits.

The success of this project was made possible by ENERCON, the builder of nine E70 wind turbines, which also transported and installed them on the infrastructure developed by LANGA and TERRE ET LAC.  Watch the testimonial by Peter Schuster, Enercon’s France Director, and by Thibaut Labonde, France Enercon’s sales engineer and their feelings about this project.
