EDF EN Canada Inc. has signed a business agreement with Huron-Wendat Nation for the installation of the Riviere-du-Moulin wind project on a territory of interest for the Huron-Wendat Nation.

The Riviere-du-Moulin wind project will consist of a total of 175 wind turbines for an overall installed capacity of 350 MW. EDF says a first phase of 150 MW will be commissioned in December 2014, followed by a second phase of 200 MW in December 2015.

"Implementing this agreement will generate substantial economic and material improvements for all members of the Huron-Wendat Nation and for future generations who will enjoy tangible benefits from this project," states Grand Chief Konrad Sioui of the Huron-Wendat Nation. “The agreement also provides the Nation with the opportunity to invest financially in the project.”

Alex Couture, director of project development for EDF EN Canada, adds, “Throughout the negotiations, it was clear that Nation leaders were interested in being a partner in the creation of this new wind energy project. This is precisely why we are able to reach an agreement to the mutual benefit of both parties.”
