Avient (formerly PolyOne)
Early in 2011, the American multinational Avient (formerly PolyOne) expressed its interest in installing wind turbines on its site in Assesse, near Ciney. Previous similar projects initiated by several companies had failed due to restrictions and environmental regulations.
- 3 Wind turbines
- 4500 MWh/year
- Total investment
- 4,5 million euros
- Successfully performed by BEE
- In operation since
- April 2018
Avient has placed three wind turbines into operation, producing about 4,500 megawatt hours of electricity annually, which corresponds to the electricity consumption of 400 Belgian families.
Avient was aiming to drastically reduce its electricity bill. BEE is responsible for the full financing of this project, an investment of around 4 million euros. In return, Avient pays a fixed price for the energy. In BEE, Avient found a partner who also takes care of the entire development process.
