Located in the municipalities of Tréveray and Saint-Joire in Meuse (Grand Est region), this future wind farm is located near (4 km) the Bonnet Houdelaincourt wind farm (13.2 MW) commissioned by Terre & Lac in February 2018.
It is a 13-turbine farm, with a unit capacity of 2.2 MW, i.e. 28.6 MW.
Launched in 2013 by our partner BAE, and co-developed for several years, the administrative permit applications were filed in December 2016. The project then went through a long approval process, featuring contributions and favourable opinions, before finally being authorised on 18 January 2019.
The site preparation work on this promising project, covered by the framework agreement signed with our client LANGA (ENGIE group) is ongoing and construction is scheduled for 2020 and commissioning for 2021.
A few key points on this project:
- 3 wind turbines in the municipal forest of Tréveray where “three furnaces and slag from inside the bottom of a furnace […] from an iron production workshop” dating from the Middle Ages (11th and 12th centuries) were found during an archaeological assessment by INRAP in early 2019;
- Strong environmental measures: natural regeneration areas, forest replantation, monitoring of measures to protect bats and birds, etc.
- There was a crowd-funding campaign that you may have contributed to in spring 2018 : https://enerfip.fr/placer-son-argent/investissement-eolien/meuse-aire-argonne-ornois/
- This wind farm will produce more than 60 gigawatt hours annually, and cover the electric energy consumption of 50,000 people excl. heating, 20,000 tonnes of CO2and prevent 200kg of nuclear waste…
