Wpd builds 14.35MW Canada farm

German developer Wpd has started construction of two wind projects in southern Ontario, with a joint capacity to generate 14.35MW.

The Springwood and Whittington wind power projects will use seven of Senvion's MM92 turbines. Senvion - formerly called REpower - is a Germany-based unit of Indian turbine maker Suzlon.

Turbine installation is slated for this summer, with the commissioning of both projects scheduled for fall 2014.

"The implementation of our first projects in Canada is a great success story for the local staff and also a significant milestone for the entire wpd group,”says Wpd board member Hartmut Brösamle.

"Active in Canada since 2007, we are now harvesting the fruits of diligent work in a challenging market,”Brösamle added.

Another four projects with a total capacity of more than 90 MW, including the 60 MW White Pines project, are being advanced by a local team of 15 staff based at Wpd’s Mississauga office.

These projects have all been awarded a feed-in tariff contract by the Ontario Power Authority and are expected to go online within the next couple of years.
