Prowind Canada, in partnership with the Oxford Community Energy Co-op (OCEC), has signed a contract with Senvion for the delivery of 10 MM92 turbines on 100-meter towers for the Gunn's Hill Wind Farm.

The 18 MW community wind project will be located in the Township of Norwich, close to Woodstock, Ontario, and the OCEC will own up to 49% of the facility.

Turbine blades will be sourced from Senvion's blade plant in Welland, Ontario, which currently employs about 130 people. The towers will also be manufactured in the province, and turbine delivery is planned for 2015.

In addition, Senvion has concluded a 15-year service contract for the project. As a result, the company says it will implement a bigger service station in Ontario and create further jobs in the province. The exact location is currently being identified.
