Renewable energy company Voltalia has begun construction of the 22 MW Sarry wind farm in the Bourgogne-FrancheComté region of France.

The Sarry wind farm is located in Sarry and Châtel-Gérard in the Yonne department.

The wind farm consists in eleven Senvion wind turbines, each with a unitary power of 2 MW and benefiting from the very good wind resources of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region.

The project’s revenues are secured under a 15-year contract for difference, starting from the commissioning date, which is expected in the second semester of 2019.

The construction of the wind plant will help attain the objective set by the region in terms of renewable energy development, which aims at reaching 2 100 MW of wind energy by 2020.

The Sarry wind farm is the second project of Voltalia in the department, after the Molinons (10 MW) wind farm commissioned in 2014.

As for Molinons, Voltalia’s teams will oversee the construction and operation & maintenance of the wind farm, further anchoring the Group’s presence in the region.
