The 27.2MW Chaintrix-Bierges wind farm is located between Chaintrix-Bierges and Vélye in the Marne département and comprises eight Siemens Gamesa SG 3.4-132 wind turbines, each capable of producing 3.4MW of renewable energy output.

Chaintrix-Bierges and Vélye Wind Farm is SSE Renewables’ first project to enter construction outside of the UK and Ireland and the first from its Southern Europe pipeline acquired last year.

Delivery of the Chaintrix-Bierges and Vélye project represents a total capital investment in excess of €30 million by SSE Renewables. This investment will help support the local economy in the Grand-Est region, with around 80 construction roles expected to be supported at peak delivery.

The Balance of Plant works are being delivered by lead Contractor Omexom in partnership with Civils contractor Pothelet.  Various other suppliers including Vodafone, Dekra, Elys, Groupe Geotec, and Auddicé have also been appointed to support the project. Siemens Gamesa have been appointed as the wind turbine supplier for the project.

Chaintrix-Bierges and Vélye is targeting commissioning at the end of 2024. When complete, the wind farm will be capable of generating enough low-carbon energy over its expected 35-year lifetime to power over 14,000 homes annually.
