EDF EN Canada Enbridge Massif du Sud wind power plant Quebec

EDF EN Canada Inc. and Enbridge Inc. (TSX, NYSE: ENB) dedicated the 150 MW Massif du Sud Wind Project, located in Quebec, Thursday along with more than 150 attendees. EDF EN Canada is a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles.

The project cost around $340 million and is located in the municipalities of Saint-Luc-de-Bellechasse and Saint-Magloire in the MRC des Etchemins and in the municipalities of Notre-Dame-Auxiliatrice-de-Buckland and Saint-Philémon in the MRC de Bellechasse.

Massif du Sud consists of 75 wind turbines supplied by REpower, with a portion of the equipment procured from the designated region of Gaspésie-Bas-Saint-Laurent. It is one of the seven wind energy projects awarded to EDF EN Canada through a Hydro-Quebec call for tenders.

Construction began on the project in November 2011 and began commercial operation in January. The project is one of two Quebec wind projects jointly owned by EDF EN Canada and Endbridge. In total, EDF EN Canada will develop slightly more than 1,000 MW of power capacity in the province over the next three years.
