Elicio started constructing a new wind farm in Evergem in Belgium at the beginning of December. The project consists of one turbine, which is being constructed on the site of N.V. Buysse Beton in the Evergem Ringvaart (Evergem lock of the canal encircling Ghent) area.
The wind farm in Evergem, which consists of a Senvion MM92-type turbine, has an installed capacity of 2.05 MW, tower height of 100m and rotor diameter of 92m. When fully operational, the wind farm will generate green energy to provide over 1,350 families with their annual consumption. Compared to traditional fossil energy generated, annual CO2 savings will amount to over 3,000 tonnes.
The new wind farm in Evergem is expected to be operational during the autumn of 2015.
