EDF Canada To Begin Wind Energy Project Construction

With an investment of approximately C$200 million, the wind power project is expected to create about 100 jobs during the construction phase and five permanent operation and maintenance jobs. Construction is expected to begin in the next few weeks.

REpower will supply 40 wind turbines rated at 2 MW each. A significant amount of content is expected to be manufactured locally, according to EDF EN Canada. LM Wind will supply the blades from its Gaspesie plant, towers will be produced at the Marmen Matane plant and SEG Woodward will contribute the electrical converters from New Richmond.
