Main actor in the wind energy industry, EDPR is now one of the first 5 operators in Wallonia in terms of installed power.
Wind energy is the most ecological way to produce electricity. EDPR is committed to contributing to the protection of the environment through proactive environmental management of its operational farms. The operational phases of the wind farms (with a lifespan of 20 years) represent the heart of the activity.
EDPR develops, builds and operate wind farms in 13 different countries in the world. EDPR takes over the whole development phases of a wind project - from the identification of the location, the request of a permit, the choice of equipment and the construction and operation of the wind farm.
The Sivry-Rance wind project answers to the local agreement for renewable energy. The town of Sivry-Rance has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions through the development of a wind project. Taking part in this project will also boost local employment as well as the local economy. During the construction phase, a big part of the project will be managed by local companies and the maintenance of these wind turbines will also need the qualified expertise of local professionals.
The project is supported by the company EDPR Belgium, owned by EDPR. The exploitation of the wind farm of Sivry-Rance will be housed by a project company which will be created and owned by EDPR.
History of the project
