The Vancouver Environmental Assessment Office has granted approval to Nomis Power Corp. to construct and operate a 100 MW wind farm on the Nahwitti Plateau, located west of Port Hardy, British Columbia.

According to the filing, Nomis plans to erect as many as 50 wind turbines and include 30 km of new access roads and bridges, as well as upgrades to existing roads and bridges and up to 20 km of underground and above-ground transmission lines.

While the proposed project has been approved for an environmental assessment certificate, the approval comes with a laundry list of conditions, such as establishing an erosion-control plan, complying with Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada directives and implementing a traffic management plan to maintain safe access during construction.
