Official inauguration of our largest Belgian wind farm
14 September 2022
On Wednesday 14 September, Elicio officially unveiled its largest wind farm on Belgian soil in Bassenge. The 9 turbines, standing at 150 metres tall, each with a capacity of 2.625 MW, will provide green energy to 16,000 households per year.
The unveiling was attended by a large number of Elicio employees, as well as partners and stakeholders who made setting up the wind farm possible early this year. Our CEO Alain Janssens took the floor, before symbolically cutting the ribbon together with Luc Gillard Député Provincial et Président du Collège, Valérie Hiance, Mayor of Bassenge, Philippe Knapen, Alderman for Town Planning.
After a remarkably dry summer, the event unfortunately coincided with the wettest day in months. However, this did not prevent us from enjoying a pleasant afternoon, with delicious Liège waffles on hand to keep us warm.
Our Bassenge wind farm is all set for a windy autumn!
