Construction of a 45-MW Canadian wind farm is set to complete in early 2011. The Lameque Wind Power Project, in the Acadian Peninsula of New Brunswick, has a 25-year power purchase agreement with New Brunswick Power. The project consists of 30, 1.5-MW Acciona turbines located over 3,100 acres. The initial groundbreaking for construction took place in early August 2010.
Tetra Tech Canada Construction is part of a joint venture with Acciona Infrastructures Canada that has been awarded a $30 million contract to provide turn-key construction services for the project. The company will provide construction management services for the access roads, foundations, turbine transportation and erection, electrical collection system and substation facilities, and the operations and maintenance building.
