La Motelle wind farmRecently, and as part of Energy Day, the Ecology Minister of the Republic of France, Delphine Batho, inaugurated the onshore wind farm of La Motelle, located in Champagne-Ardenne, with a total power of 24 MW.
Here at Ormazabal, we have supplied the medium-voltage switchgear to equip the eight 3 MW mills making up the park. They are capable of generating electricity for 24,000 homes, which constitutes 10% of the population of the Ardennes.
It is the first onshore wind farm in France with these specifications, as until now only farms consisting of 2 to 2.5 MW turbines have existed. Over the past few years, France has made an enormous commitment to renewable energy, making hydraulic and onshore wind power energy the most competitive in the market. Ormazabal participates actively in this challenge, with a presence in 17 other onshore wind farms with a total of 175 MW
