Senvion in Quebec

In 2009, Senvion Canada signed the largest framework agreement in the history of the company with EDF EN Canada Inc. The agreement planned for the delivery of MM82 and MM92 CCV (Cold Climate Version) type turbines to five Quebec wind farms, for an installed capacity of 954 MW. Further contracts were also concluded with regard to several community projects totaling another 100 MW of installed power. In early 2013, due to the increased activities in Quebec, and in recognizing that Montreal has quickly become a business center for the wind industry, Senvion inaugurated the Montreal office as its North American headquarters.

In September 2014, Senvion signed a contract for the delivery of its 3.2M114 Cold Climate Version type turbines to the 150 Megawatt Mesgi'g Ugju's'n (MU) wind farm in Quebec, Canada. The MU wind project is owned and developed in a 50-50 partnership between the three Mi’gmaq First Nations communities of Quebec and Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. It is the biggest wind farm project with First Nations participation in Quebec to date, and for the Mi’gmaq communities, the partnership with Innergex is the first agreement undertaken with an energy company.

As our installed capacity and our project list grows in Quebec, we continue to investment in the community through job creation, manufacturing locally, offering cost-competitive solutions and supporting the local supply chain. Senvion turbine towers, blades and electric converters are all supplied by factories located in Matane, Gaspé, Trois-Rivières and New Richmond, within the province of Quebec.
