About us

Senvion Canada

Senvion Canada is a division of German-based Senvion S.A., one of the world’s leading turbine manufacturers in the wind energy sector and a pioneer in the offshore business.

Our mission is to provide the latest wind energy technology at the lowest cost possible, to communities across Canada and to help the country achieve its climate change targets. We have supplied our technology to a number of large- and small-scale projects since we began operating in Canada in 2009 with over 660 turbines and an installed capacity of over 1,400 MW.

We’re committed to partnering with developers, communities, and  First Nations, to maximize our economic and social contribution. That includes hiring and training local people, as well as creating local supply chains for our products and services wherever possible.

Senvion Canada is headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, with offices in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia. We also have a service base in Kitchener, Ontario.

Senvion is owned by Centerbridge Partners, a New York-based private equity firm.

Senvion staff are passionate about clean energy. Our goal is to deliver wind power to communities across Canada at a low cost while using the latest technology. Our team of highly skilled and well-trained employees delivers regional expertise to wind farms across the continent. Senvion is dedicated to  support communities in getting the most out of their projects, while also maximizing the environmental, social and economic benefits of wind energy.

Project Management

In North America, we have an experienced team of project managers that understand and know our technology intimately. They are ready to go the extra mile for your wind farm in making sure you meet your operation timelines without breaking the bank.

The road from planning a wind power project to its energy-producing start is long, and begins well before the actual construction phase, with setting up the necessary infrastructure and laying a solid foundation for your wind project. You can rely on our support and experience every step of the way – from road planning, supply chain management and installations, to the connection of every single wind turbine to the grid.
