Toronto's Trillium Power Wind Corp. and several other groups have announced the launch of the Tai wind consortium to build offshore wind turbines and equipment in Canada.

"The world is rapidly embracing various forms of renewable energy, such as wind power and especially consistent and stronger power from offshore wind, and Ontario has the offshore wind resources, facilities, workforce and innovative spirit to bring it to the world," says John Kourtoff, president and CEO of Trillium. "We know that Tai wind can lead the way in building the foundation of a fully integrated green-collar economy."

The Tai wind consortium is a partnership led by Trillium Power Wind Corp. and includes other offshore wind developers in the U.S., with several more in discussion to join. It is an initiative to build a solid economic foundation to bolster Ontario's manufacturing sector and place Canada as a leader in eco-friendly innovation, according to Trillium. Tai wind intends to aggregate its purchase of turbines and towers as well as transmission cables, barges and other equipment and services from North American suppliers.
