After years of development, discussions and administrative investigations, it took fewer than 12 weeks to build the infrastructure and install the first wind turbine. The whole construction was completed in just 5 months. It was perfectly prepared and coordinated by Terre et Lac Conseil, despite pretty tough wintry conditions.
The park is now up and running and the turbines will produce carbon-free green energy for the next 25 to 30 years.
In all, it will have taken only three years between the filing of the applications for administrative permits (PC + ICPE) and the commissioning of the wind park. Terre et Lac Conseil was in charge of development, supported the funding, prepared the construction site and coordinated the building of this project for the SPEBH company, a subsidiary of the LANGA group.
It is the second wind park project commissioned in 2017 (for a total 35 MW) as part of the partnership between LANGA and Terre et Lac initiated in 2013. Several dozen other projects are scheduled between 2018 and 2023 for a total accumulated power of 300 to 500 MW.
In particular, four other projects are currently in construction in the Meuse and Moselle regions. A major crowd-funding campaign will be set up in the next few weeks aimed at neighbours of project sites and extended to residents of the Grand-Est region.
Reminder of the technical details:
4 x 3.3 MW VESTAS V117 wind turbines
Mast height: 91 m
Blade length: 58 m
Total installed power: 13.2 MW
Production of 25,000 MWh/year i.e. an equivalent of 8,000 households
