Senvion, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Suzlon Group, has signed a contract to supply turbines for the 150 MW Mesgi'g Ugju's'n (MU) wind farm in Quebec. The MU project is owned and developed in a 50-50 partnership between the three Mi'gmaq First Nations of Quebec and Innergex Renewable Energy Inc.
Senvion will deliver its 3.2M114 cold-climate-version wind turbines. Equipped with a hot-air de-icing system, each machine features a rated power of 3.2 MW, a hub height of 100 meters and a rotor diameter of 114 meters.
The company notes the MU contract represents the first time Senvion will be installing the 3.2M114 on North American soil, with almost 500 MW already installed in Europe. The MU project was awarded a power purchase agreement in March and is scheduled for commissioning by the end of 2016.
Michel Letellier, president and CEO of Innergex Renewable Energy, states, "Signing this turbine supply contract marks an important milestone in the development of the MU wind project, founded on our strong partnership with the Mi'gmaq First Nations of Quebec. As a result, the project's risk profile and economic returns are improved."
