Crossing the cape of two gigawatts in operation, following the full commissioning of a new wind farm in France

Voltalia (Euronext Paris, ISIN code: FR0011995588), an international player in renewable energies, has seen its installed capacity exceed two gigawatts, thanks to the commissioning of the Sud Vannier wind farm (23.6 megawatts) in France.

“Following on the SSM3-6 solar power plant, which reached full capacity at the beginning of the month with 260 megawatts fed into the grid, it is now the turn of the Sud Vannier wind farm to reach full capacity. We are very pleased to announce that our fleet of operating power stations has now passed the two-gigawatt mark, a 3-fold increase since we set the target of 2023 in 2019, and 19% growth since June 30th. I would like to thank all the development, construction, operation and support teams who have achieved this performance over the last four years.”, says Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia.

Following the launch of construction in October 2021 and the start of production in April 2023, the Sud-Vannier wind farm in the Haute-Marne region of France, about 25 kilometres south-east of the town of Langres and 65 kilometres north-east of the town of Dijon, is now fully operational. It will supply Leroy Merlin with renewable electricity as part of the first corporate PPA wind farm ever signed in France1 for a new asset.
