Gamesa has secured a deal to supply three turbines for a 6 MW wind farm in western Canada, as well as to conduct operations and maintenance services at the project for five years.

The Box Springs wind project will be erected on land owned by the City of Medicine Hat, located about 180 miles from Calgary in the southeastern corner of Alberta, and will feature three Gamesa G90-2.0 MW turbines on 78-meter towers.

The project is underpinned by a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) between Medicine Hat and the project’s developer, Box Springs Wind Corp., a subsidiary of WindRiver Power Corp. Under the PPA, Medicine Hat will receive all electricity generated by the project together with all carbon credits attributable to the project. Gamesa notes the carbon credits may be used under Alberta legislation to offset emissions from city-owned natural-gas-fired electricity generation.

Completion of the Box Springs project is targeted for mid-2014. This is Gamesa’s second Canadian project; the 10 MW Gesner Wind Farm in Highgate, Ontario, went online in 2012.
