The construction of Villers-le-Tourneur wind farm began in the Grand-Est region, close to the Belgian border, on 1 September, just as restrictions on construction works due to the bird nesting season ended. Five N-117 Nordex turbines, each with a hub height of 91 m and a total output of 15 MW, are expected to supply almost 10,000 households with electricity each year in the future. The French Energiequelle subsidiary P&T Technologie is responsible for construction.

The project was acquired from the pipeline of the Leipzig-based project developer Green Energy 3000 GmbH, who is supporting in Villers-le-Tourneur on site.

Cable and road construction work is currently taking place on-site so that foundation construction can begin in November. The wind farm is scheduled to be commissioned in July 2021.

With the implementation of the Villers-le-Tourneur wind farm, the output of the turbines constructed by P&T in France will reach a total of 200 MW, while a further 73 MW is to be added in the next two years. In total, the Energiequelle Group has built more than 750 turbines with an output of over 1,400 MW.
