The Quebec regional county municipality (RCM) of Riviere-du-Loup, Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. and REpower Systems AG have concluded a contract for the delivery, installation and maintenance of 12 REpower MM92 turbines.
The turbines are destined for the construction of the 24 MW Viger-Denonville wind farm, which is expected to be commissioned in spring 2013.
Riviere-du-Loup is the first Quebec RCM that has concluded a contract for a community wind farm with Hydro-Quebec Distribution.
The construction of the wind farm was awarded as the result of a public call for tenders made by Hydro-Quebec aimed at the construction of independent community wind farms. REpower plans to contribute to three more community wind parks in Quebec.
