Germany-based developer wpd has started construction of the Springwood and Whittington wind power projects in southern Ontario. The two projects will total 14.35 MW in capacity and feature seven MM92 turbines from Senvion, formerly known as REpower.

To date, access roads and foundation pits have been completed in line with the construction schedule. Turbine installation is slated for this summer, with the commissioning of both projects scheduled for the fall.

“The implementation of our first projects in Canada is a great success story for the local staff and also a significant milestone for the entire wpd group,” says Hartmut Brosamle, a wpd board member. “Active in Canada since 2007, we are now harvesting the fruits of diligent work in a challenging market.”

The company says another four projects with a total capacity of more than 90 MW, including the 60 MW White Pines project, are being advanced by a local team of 15 staff based at wpd’s Mississauga office. These projects have all been awarded a feed-in tariff contract by the Ontario Power Authority and are expected to go online within the next couple of years.
