EDF Luminus strengthens its position as market leader in onshore wind energy. In 2017 30 windmills were built, a record!

The amount invested in wind energy in 2017 amounts to 58 million euros. This considerable effort translates into an increase in wind energy production of almost 20% in 2017, which accounts for 17.5% of Belgian wind energy production

In 2017 almost 20 new license applications were submitted to the competent authorities.

In 2017, the total number of training hours spent on safety was 7 039 hours (or an increase of 26%, compared to 5 579 hours in 2016).
