Senvion wins 150MW Quebec wind turbine order
Monday, November 10, 2014: Germany-based wind turbine group Senvion has won a 150MW supply deal in Quebec, Canada. Senvion will deliver its 3.2M114 Cold Climate Version turbines to the Mesgi'g Ugju's'n wind farm.
The project – a 50/50 partnership between the three Mi’gmaq First Nations of Quebec and Innergex Renewable Energy – is due to be commissioned by the end of 2016.
The plant will be Quebec’s largest yet to be built with First Nations participation.
The delivery will mark the first time the 3.2M114 with hot-air de-icing is deployed in North America, said Senvion.
The manufacturer – a subsidiary of India’s Suzlon – claimed its case was helped by the performance of its turbines at the existing Viger-Denonville community wind farm in Quebec.
Senvion has been the star performer of the Suzlon group in recent years.
The Indian company has mooted the possibility of a partial stock market listing for the Germany-based company, although no firm decision has been taken.
