Finavera Renewables Inc., a Vancouver, British Columbia-based renewable energy project developer, has selected Canadian engineering firm Genivar to lead the engineering development of four wind projects in British Columbia. Genivar will act as the owner's engineer for the wind projects, which have a total capacity of 366 MW.
‘Genivar brings a wealth of proven expertise and experience in the design of heavy civil engineering and construction fields to the project team and strongly complements the project development skills of Finavera Renewables,’ says Bertan Atalay, chief operating officer of Finavera. ‘This puts our company on the path to delivering a significant portfolio of operating wind farms in British Columbia.’
Genivar will assist Finavera with design and preparation of engineering drawings, construction management, and specifications for turbine installation and commissioning. According to Finavera, hiring Genivar represents a significant step towards a potential bid into the British Columbia Hydro request for proposals.
