TransAlta Corp. has commissioned 123 MW from two new wind facilities – one in Alberta, the other in New Brunswick – both of which were ahead of schedule and on budget.
The C$135 million Ardenville Wind Facility involved the installation of 23 Vestas V90-3.0 MW wind turbines. The facility has an installed capacity of 69 MW and is expected to generate enough power for about 11,500 average homes.
The C$102 million expansion to the Kent Hills Wind Facility has increased the existing generation capacity by 54 MW with the installation of 18 Vestas V90-3.0 MW wind turbines. The expansion is expected to generate enough electricity to meet the needs of about 9,000 homes.
