Senvion starts operation of biggest First Nations windfarm in Canada
150 MW project highlights ongoing importance of North American market
Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, announces that today, 47 Senvion wind turbines started spinning at the 150 MW Mesgi'g Ugju's'n windfarm in Quebec, Canada. It is the biggest First Nations windfarm in Canada and can power about 50,500 households with clean, renewable energy for one year. The project is an equal partnership between Innergex and the three Mi'gmaq communities located on the territory of Gespe'gewa'gi: Gesgapegiag, Gespeg and Listuguj.
The windfarm features 46 Senvion 3.2M114 type turbines and one Senvion MM92 especially designed and engineered for cold climates and equipped with an anti-icing mechanism. The blades and towers were manufactured locally in Quebec, by LM Wind Power in Gaspé and Marmen in Matane. Each turbine is 100 m tall, has a rotor diameter of 114 m (92 m for the MM92) and a capacity of 3.2 MW. The 46 wind turbines are the first operating 3.2M114 type turbines in North America.
Jürgen Geissinger, CEO at Senvion, says: "With the Mesgi'g Ugju's'n wind project, Senvion has demonstrated once more its capability as a highly flexible business partner: we supply customized and locally manufactured technology to meet the client's needs."
Helmut Herold, CEO at Senvion North America, says: "We are honoured to supply the leading First Nations windfarm in Canada. In doing so, we are committed to maximizing our economic and social contribution to the community by hiring and training local people. At the same time, Senvion is passionate about delivering the best technology to make wind energy even more competitive and affordable."
Over the past decade, Senvion has accumulated a lot of experience working with First Nations, communities and co-ops in North America. The company has created local business partnerships and established offices, warehouses and service locations in both Canada and the US. By doing so, Senvion has helped create more than five hundred manufacturing jobs for the local production of wind turbine components in the communities where it operates.
