With 67 Siemens wind turbine generators, the Grand Renewable Wind Project is one of the largest of its kind in Canada and generates power for over 50,000 homes.
In February 2013, Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. hired us to provide owner’s engineer and construction management services for its 150-MW wind power project in southwestern Ontario. The project is just one of the many renewable energy projects our client has planned in the province and it’s a great start in reducing atmospheric emissions that cause greenhouse gases and acid rain.
The Grand Renewable wind turbines are spread over a 25-kilometre area between the communities of Dunnville and Hagersville. They’re connected by 170 kilometres of medium-voltage underground collectors, one substation and 20 kilometres of high-voltage transmission lines.
The project is part of a multi-billion-dollar portfolio of wind and solar projects. This portfolio is the result of a landmark agreement negotiated directly between Samsung and the Ontario government in 2009 and 2010. Along with joint-venture partner Pattern Energy, Samsung is one of the largest developers of wind power in Ontario.
We’re pleased to be involved in an initiative to bring renewable energy to Ontario and to strengthen our leadership and expertise in this emerging field.
