EDF lines up Vestas in BC
Five V112 3MW machines destined for Wartenbe project in Canada
EDF EN Canada proposes to install Vestas turbines at a 15MW wind farm in northeast British Columbia.
The Wartenbe project will include five V112 3MW machines with a 119-metre hub height, according to a regulatory filing.
The project has been accepted by BC Hydro as part of the Standing Offer Program for renewable energy projects up to 15MW.
Once the project receives regulatory and zoning approvals, the utility is expected to negotiate final terms of a long-term electricity purchase agreement.
Wartenbe has a proposed in-service date of 1 January 2018.
The development is located on provincial Crown land within the Peace River Regional District, southeast of the town of Chetwynd.
The province granted environmental approval in 2006 for a 47-turbine 70.5MW wind farm at the site, however, the project failed to win an offtake contract. The five-turbine scheme encompasses 250 hectares within the same footprint.
