Senvion wind turbine decorated for the Tour de France

Last week, the Tour de France started with its first stage in Vendée. This event is the opportunity to discover the stunning views of the French landscape! For the French regions, the energy transition is essential and wind power is an valuable asset to make this transition happen.

Senvion and CGN Europe Energy, operator of the Vix wind farm marked the passage of the peloton in the Vix town. One Senvion MM92 of the Vix wind farm is dressed with the red polka dot jersey referring to the Côte de Vix!

With a total capacity of 10.25 MW, the wind farm produces enough electricity to power more than 10,000 people in France in a year and avoid the emission of 7,000 tons of CO2.
