Gouvy - a project for the future - wind farm and storage
The project developed by WattElse will consist of 9 wind turbines which will have a power of between 4.8 and 6.5 MW and which will measure a maximum of 210m. In order to manage the intermittency of wind technology, storage solutions for the electricity produced will also be studied in this project.
INHABITANTS OF THE COMMUNITY
The commune of Gouvy has just under 8,500 inhabitants. Following an energy audit, the municipality has for several years been developing improvement projects relating, among other things, to the energy performance of its public buildings: installation of photovoltaic panels, replacement of frames, roof insulation, replacement of boilers, etc.
WIND PROJECT AND STORAGE
9 wind turbines from 4.5 to 6.5 MW
Each wind turbine has a total height ranging from 180m to 210m and the rotor has a diameter of approximately 120 to 155m.
The power of each wind turbine is between 4.2 and 6MW for a total maximum power of 54 MW.
CO2 PRODUCTION, ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
150 GWh per year
The estimated maximum production of the 9 wind turbines is 150 GWh per year, which is equivalent to an average annual consumption of 45,000 Walloon households (based on a consumption of 3,500 kWh/year).
These 9 wind turbines will also prevent the emission of nearly 48,000 tonnes of CO² per year (CWaPE data compared to a reference gas-steam turbine power plant), which represents the equivalent of the emissions of nearly 35,000 cars.
Environmental studies office
Based in Wallonia, Sertius has already been responsible for drafting more than 200 environmental impact studies in Wallonia.
Project leader and Belgian consultancy office specializing in the energy transition sector.
Active in the development of renewable energy production projects, WattElse is currently working on 500 MW of wind, photovoltaic, biomass and storage renewable production projects in Belgium and France. WattElse also provides support for energy strategy missions for the public and private sector (Industries and SMEs)
