The 14 turbines of the La Croix-Benjamin project have total capacity of 28MW and are Akuo Energy’s largest wind farm in France. Straddling the Aube and Marne départements, the project is very well integrated into its environment and contributes to the energy diversification of a region traditionally focused on conventional electricity generation.

The presence of two other Akuo Energy wind farms in the same region (Fontaine-Macon I and II, with total capacity of 20MW) has also enabled the creation of a new Vestas maintenance center close by, thus creating new and permanent jobs in this rural area.
