In 2020, Sivry-Rance (Walloon Region) will host a new wind farm developed by EDPR Belgium, a subsidiary of EDP Renewables, with the support of WattElse.
This project initiated and supported by the municipality of Sivry-Rance in 2009 will lead 10 years later to the construction of 4 wind turbines in the north of the Grandrieu village. The new wind farm will produce 26 GWh/year, the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 7,500 Walloon households and will prevent the emission of nearly 12,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Progress of the construction site
The wind farm works started in February 2019. The first stages of excavation, landfill, levelling and access creation were completed as well as the inter-windturbine connection.
After a few weeks of work standstill due to a delay in the delivery of wind turbines. The electric head cabin has been installed at the beginning of September 2019, and the site preparation works for the arrival of the wind turbines are planned from February 2020. The foundations will be poured next spring and the wind turbines will be erected at the beginning of the summer 2020.
We will keep you informed of the next construction steps.
