H.B. White Canada Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of White Construction Inc., has been selected as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor to build four community wind energy projects in Nova Scotia.

Project developer juwi Wind Services Canada chose H.B. after a competitive process. The 24 MW portfolio consists of the 10 MW Pockwock Community Wind Project, 6 MW Millbrook Community Wind Project, 4 MW Truro-Heights Community Wind Project, and 4 MW Whynotts Community Wind Project.

"The White organization and their affiliated companies have built over 10,500 MW of wind power projects throughout North America and traditionally builds much larger projects. However, the close proximity of these projects and our past experience working with First Nations made the juwi wind portfolio an attractive opportunity for our company," says Chris Hanson of White Construction Inc.

The projects were developed as a portfolio under the Nova Scotia Community Feed-In-Tariff program, through which each project is partially owned by the local community. The four projects entered into agreements with Vestas to supply 12 total V100-2.0 MW turbines in late 2013.
