After nine months of construction, the first ten Senvion 3.2M114 CCV wind turbines are now spinning in British-Columbia. They were installed at two windfarms – Pennask and Shinish Creek – which have a total capacity of 30 megawatts. The two projects were developed by Zero Emission Energy Developments Inc. and local First Nations communities. They are owned by InstarAGF. In addition to the supply contract, the customer signed a 15 year ISP.
“Transporting our turbines into the mountains and installing them before the harsh winter was a great demonstration of our team’s expertise”, says Project Manager Damien Charreton, now with Senvion France S.A.S.
“With Pennask and Shinish Creek, we have entered a new Canadian province. This is an important signal especially given that our business focus in Canada is shifting westwards.”, says Helmut Herold, CEO North America at Senvion.
