H.B. White Canada Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary of White Construction Inc. has been selected by IPR-GDF SUEZ North America as the EPC contractor for the East Lake St. Clair Wind Farm. The 99-MW wind farm is located in Chatham-Kent on the eastern shoreline of Lake St. Clair in Ontario, Canada. The project spans 6,800 acres and will consist of 55 Vestas V-90, 1.8-MW turbines.
White has installed over 4,000 MW of wind power across North America and this will be the fifth wind project constructed by the company in Ontario. “H.B. White is pleased to be a part of the East Lake St Clair project with GDF Suez.
White expanded operations in Canada and opened an office in Ontario in 2005 to support growing construction demands for renewable-power projects in Canada. We are proud that our investment in Ontario supports the requirements and intent of the Province’s Feed In Tariff program.” said Greg Duke, Vice President of Business Development for HB White Canada Corp.

Re: Construction firm to build 99 MW wind project in Ontario
A nice photo with the article, but that looks like a Vestas V82 rotor, it’s definitely not a V90. I’ve climbed enough of both of them to know the difference. 🙂
The three external entry hatches and the obvious yellow-painted tie-off points are a dead giveaway. Access to the V90 hub is from the inside (thankfully), not from the outside as on the V82.
I have lots of nice photos of V80s, V82s, V90s and even some old V47s from my time with Vestas, if you need additional resources….
