REpower Systems AG has signed contracts for two Canadian wind projects. The two orders cover the delivery, installation and maintenance of 55 REpower MM92 CCV turbines specifically designed for cold climates.
A total of 40 turbines are destined for the Saint-Robert-Bellarmin wind farm located in Quebec. The other 15 turbines are to be installed at the Ganaraska and Whispering Woods wind farms in Ontario.
Construction of the 80 MW Saint-Robert-Bellarmin project is expected to begin this summer. REpower will generate at least 30% of the added value with the wind turbines in the Gaspesie-Iles-de-la-Madeleine region and the Matane regional county municipality.
The contracts for the Ganaraska and Whispering Woods wind farms were concluded with Wind Works Power Corp. Together, these two projects are expected to generate a total of 30 MW of installed power. For the construction of Ganaraska and Whispering Woods, REpower will cooperate with local companies supplying towers, blades and converters.
