Voltalia, an international player in renewable energies, is pursuing its wind energy development in France with the construction of the Sud Vannier wind farm with a capacity of 23.6 megawatts
Located in Haute-Marne, approximately 25 kilometers southeast of the city of Langres and 65 kilometers northeast of the city of Dijon, the Sud Vannier wind farm has a 20-year sales contract with a guaranteed price. Commissioning is planned for the first half of 2023.
This will be Voltalia's first wind farm in the Grand-Est and its third wind farm the Lorraine region, after those of Sarry (23.1 megawatts) and Molinons (10 megawatts), located within a radius of about 150 kilometers of the Sud Vannier project.
When the Sud Vannier wind farm is commissioned, the production of this project will cover the domestic electricity needs (excluding heating) of approximately 26,000 people, or about 15% of the population of the Haute-Marne department.
The Grand-Est region is an important development area for Voltalia. The wind resource is good and the region's objective is to be positive energy and low carbon by 2050.
