Elicio started constructing a new wind farm in the Port of Ghent in Belgium at the beginning of December. The project consists of one turbine, which is being constructed on the site of N.V. Beltanco in the Port of Ghent.
The wind farm in Ghent, which consists of an Enercon E82-type turbine, has an installed capacity of 2.3 MW, tower height of 108m and rotor diameter of 82m. 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 3,100 tonnes.
The new wind farm in Beltanco is expected to be operational during the autumn of 2015.
