La Fossette

Installed capacity: 12 MWc
Number of panels: 45.000
Commissioning year: 2017

The La Fossette solar power plant, located in the Bouches-du-Rhône department, was developed and built by EDF Energies Nouvelles in the Fos-sur-Mer industrial and port complex on land owned by ArcelorMittal. The steelmaker, which owns 1,600 hectares, has made 15 hectares available to EDF Energies Nouvelles.

Equipped with over 45,000 photovoltaic panels, the 12 MWp solar plant generates the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 7,400 inhabitants, which represents half of the Fos-sur-Mer population.

Up to 40 people were involved in the 10-month-long construction of the plant.
