GE has announced that it will supply 24 GE 2.85-103 turbines to the McLean's Mountain Wind Farm, located on Manitoulin Island in Ontario.
The 60 MW wind project is a 50/50 partnership between independent power producer Northland Power Inc. and Mnidoo Mnising Power (MMP), a corporation formed by a group of First Nations.
GE will provide operations and maintenance through a 10-year full service agreement for the McLean's Mountain Wind Farm. The company says its global wind monitoring center in Schenectady, N.Y., will perform around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics.
"GE is pleased to work with Northland Power and its partner Mnidoo Mnising Power and is committed to supporting the growth of renewable energy in Canada," comments Anne McEntee, president and CEO of GE's renewable energy business. "As of 2013, we have installed 1.8 GW of wind power in Canada, which accounts for 29 percent of Canada's total installed base."
