[Destroyed by a fire in the nacelle in January, one of the wind turbines in the “Vent de Thiérache” project was taken down with the use of explosives.]

Ardennes – C’est une première nationale. Ce mardi en fin de matinée, sur la commune d’Antheny dans l’arrondissement de Charleville-Mézières, la société Cardem Démolition a procédé au démantèlement d’une éolienne par basculement à l’explosif.

L’équipement avait été fortement sinistrée après qu’un incendie s’était déclaré au niveau de sa nacelle le 9 janvier 2014.

L’opération de ce mardi a mobilisé 13 sapeurs-pompiers, 20 gendarmes, une trentaine de personnes de la société en charge du démantèlement ainsi que des experts d’ERDF, de GRTGaz et de la société propriétaire de l’éolienne.
