Senvion, a subsidiary of wind turbine manufacturer Suzlon Group, has won a contract for the delivery of 3.2M114 Cold Climate Version type turbines to the 150MW Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n (MU) wind farm in Quebec, Canada.
Each of the Senvion 3.2M114 turbine models to be installed at the farm promises a rated power of 3.2MW and is equipped with a hot-air de-icing system.
The turbines with 100m hub height and 114m rotor diameter have generation capacity to power almost 94,000 homes, the company stated.
The MU wind project is owned and developed in a 50-50 partnership between three Mi’gmaq First Nations of Quebec and Innergex Renewable Energy.
“Big wind farms like MU highlight the importance of the renewable sector for the country.”
It is the biggest wind project in Quebec to be set up with First Nations’ co-operation.
Power purchase agreement for the wind project was signed in March 2014 and its commissioning is likely to be completed by 2016.
Senvion SE CEO Andreas Nauen said: “We are delighted to deliver our turbines for this flagship project with the First Nations. Big wind farms like MU highlight the importance of the renewable sector for the country.”
Innergex Renewable Energy president and chief executive officer Michel Letellier said: “Signing this turbine supply contract marks an important milestone in the development of the MU wind project, founded on our strong partnership with the Mi’gmaq First Nations of Quebec. As a result, the project’s risk profile and economic returns are improved.”
