Senvion recently signed a contract for the delivery of its 3.2M114 Cold Climate Version type turbines to the 150 MW Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n (MU) wind farm in Quebec.
This is the first time Senvion will be installing the 3.2M114, equipped with a hot-air de-icing system, on North American soil. The Senvion 3.2M114 turbines, each with a rated power of 3.2 MW, a hub height of 100 m, and a rotor diameter of 114 m, are expected to produce enough electricity to power about 94,000 homes.
The MU wind project is owned and developed in a 50-50 partnership between the three Mi’gmaq First Nations of Quebec and Innergex Renewable Energy. It is the biggest wind farm project with First Nations participation in Quebec to date. The project was awarded a power purchase agreement in March 2014 and is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2016.
“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,” says Michel Letellier, president and CEO of Innergex Renewable Energy. “As a result, the project’s risk profile and economic returns are improved.”
