Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES Canada) has started construction on the 270 MW South Kent Wind project. Located within the municipality of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, the project is being developed by Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. and Pattern Energy Group LP.

RES Canada was selected to serve as the general contractor and will oversee project management of all construction activities. The South Kent project includes 124 Siemens 2.3 MW turbines manufactured in Ontario, including towers from facilities in Windsor and blades from Tillsonburg.

“RES Canada is excited to be selected as the construction manager for South Kent Wind, the biggest wind project ever built in Ontario. This project is a milestone for RES Canada and for clean energy production in Ontario,” says Peter Clibbon, vice president of development at RES Canada.

South Kent Wind represents an investment of about $700 million in Ontario's renewable energy infrastructure by Samsung Renewable Energy and Pattern Energy Group. Construction is expected to last approximately one year, with up to 500 workers expected on-site during peak construction.
