Cape Scott Wind Project Now Operating in British Columbia

LCG, January 23, 2014 -- GDF SUEZ Canada Inc. and joint venture partners Mitsui & Co., Ltd. and Fiera Axium Infrastructure Inc. Tuesday announced that the 99-MW Cape Scott Wind Project in British Columbia has commenced commercial operation under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with BC Hydro.

The Cape Scott Wind Farm is located on the Knob Hill Plateau on the northern tip of Vancouver Island and includes 55 Vestas V100 turbines, each with capacity of 1.8 MW. Construction on the project began in the summer of 2011.

The remote project site required the construction of 21 miles of all-new access roads through boggy, forested areas, including the installation of 28 bridges, 67 imbedded culverts and 500 cross-drain culverts. The project also required the installation of 25 miles of transmission lines over rough terrain to the electrical grid with a substation at Port Hardy. The cost of the project is estimated to be CDN $325 million.

The project is the joint venture?s tenth wind installation in Canada and increases their total wind-powered operating capacity to 660 MW in the Canadian Maritimes, Ontario, and British Columbia.
