Canada's largest wind energy facility dedicated

Senvion wind turbines

EDF EN Canada Inc. today dedicated its Rivière-du-Moulin Wind Project in Quebec, Canada.

Once completed, Rivière-du-Moulin Wind Project will be the largest wind energy facility in Canada, generating 350 MW of power under a single power purchase agreement (PPA).

The $800 million wind farm is being developed and constructed in two phases. The first phase of 150 MW was commissioned in November 2014. The second phase of 200 MW will be commissioned by December 2015. Consisting of 175 turbines supplied by Senvion, the project created 565 jobs during the peak construction phase. Electricity generated is delivered to Hydro-Quebec Distribution under a 20-year PPA.

By the end of 2017, EDF EN Canada will have placed into service 1,599 MW of wind and solar projects throughout Canada. The project further represents the largest onshore wind facility to be developed, built, and put into service by the EDF EN Group globally.
