Geocache Description:

Cette Micro-cache vous permettra de découvrir le premier parc éolien de Haute-Marne.
Inauguré le 5 septembre 2008, il comporte 6 éoliennes il a profondément modifié le paysage local, mais s’y intègre assez bien du faite de sa taille limitée. Certains aiment, d’autres non…
Quelques chiffres sur une éolienne :
- hauteur : 80 m
- longueur d’une pale : 44 m
- vitesse de rotation : 9 à 14,9 tours/min
- poids : 253 tonnes

la production éléctrique du parc est estimée à 26 000 000 kWh/an, soit la consommation annuelle de 10000 foyers.
Les éoliennes sont prévues pour fonctionner 20 ans. Ensuite, elles seront soit remplacées par des nouvelles, soit démantelées.


This micro-cache will enable you to discover the first wind park in Haute-Marne.
Inaugurated on September 5, 2008, it comprises 6 wind turbines. It has considerably changed the local landscape, but it integrates quite well with its relative small size. Some like it, others don’t.

A few figures about a wind turbine:
- high: 80 m (about 26 feet)
- blade-length: 44 m (about 145 feet)
- rotation speed: 9 to 14.9 revolutions/min
- weight: 253 tons

The electricity produced is estimated at 26,000 000 KWh/year, i.e. the year consumption of 10,000 houses.
The wind turbines should last 20 years. Then they will be replaced by new ones or dismantled.
