Through the company Limburg Win(d)t, Aspiravi is currently building 11 new wind turbines in the Limburg province. We received the permits for these turbines in 5 different locations at practically the same time. Given that we actually build all the projects that receive a permit, we had a completely full work schedule in Limburg this year.
The construction works are now in full swing at all five locations. The foundation works have been completed and the large parts for the erection of the actual turbines have been delivered on site. In Genk, Limburg Win(d)t is building 4 new turbines at 2 locations on the Aperam company site. Build-up is now complete. In Maasmechelen (site Oude Bunders), Lummen (site Kolenhaven) and Ham (along the Albert Canal) two wind turbines are erected at each site. One turbine is being built at Dilsen-Stokkem.
All of the wind turbines will be operational by the end of the year. Besides producing green energy for 11,450 families each year, the 11 wind turbines reduce annual CO2 emissions by 18,314 tonnes. This equals annual emissions of 7,800 cars.
