REpower and EDF EN Canada conclude contract for 150MW wind farm in Canada

REpower Systems SE has signed a contract with EDF Energies Nouvelles Canada to supply 75 wind turbines in Québec, the third order following a framework agreement between EDF Energies Nouvelles and REpower in November 2009. EDF EN already awarded the Lac Alfred and Saint-Robert-Bellarmin projects to REpower. The three projects see the release 530MW of the 954MW framework agreement.

The REpower MM82 and MM92 turbines will be installed at the Massif du Sud wind farm on the southern shore of Quebec City. They have a rated output of 2MW, a hub height of 80m and have been adapted to Canada’s demanding grid conditions, including the use of special cold climate versions. Helmut Herold, managing director of the Canadian subsidiary REpower Systems, said: “Our cold climate turbines, which are particularly suited to the climatic conditions in Canada, have proven themselves in pilot projects and sell themselves very well.”

The first deliveries will take place early 2012 with commissioning of the wind farm scheduled for autumn, after which REpower will become responsible for maintaining the turbines.

Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower Systems SE, commented: “Canada is one of the world’s strongest growing wind markets and is of great importance to our business as well. We are delighted to be realising numerous high-output projects in the Québec region with EDF EN Canada Inc.”
