Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. and Pattern Energy Group broke ground on the 270 MW South Kent Wind project in Ontario.
The project will use 124 wind turbines, with Siemens (NYSE: SI) manufacturing the blades and CS Wind building the towers. TowerTEX’s TowerSHADE product will also be used on the wind turbines to ease the impact of the red lights at night on residents near the project.
There will be 300 workers on-site during construction, with 500 workers expected during peak construction periods.
The project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2014.
