Pattern Energy’s development company has completed its 147MW Mont Sainte-Marguerite wind farm in the Canadian province of Quebec, making Pattern the number-one wind operator in Canada.

Mont Sainte-Marguerite marks Pattern’s second Canadian project to cross the finish line this month, having only last week announced the completion of the 100MW North Kent wind farm in Ontario with partner Samsung Renewable Energy.

With Mont Sainte-Marguerite’s 46 Siemens Gamesa turbines up and running, the Pattern family of companies – comprising the publicly listed yieldco Pattern Energy and its privately held developers – claims to have 1,533MW of Canadian wind capacity either under direct ownership or under management for partnering investors.
