Vancouver, B.C.-based NaiKun Wind Energy Group Inc. has completed a commercial agreement with the Metlakatla First Nation regarding transmission routing for the proposed NaiKun offshore wind project.

The proposed project is located in Hecate Strait with a planned transmission interconnection point south of Prince Rupert in the traditional territory of Metlakatla. The agreement provides Metlakatla with certain economic and financial benefits and gives NaiKun transmission access for the project.

"We share a commitment to sustainable economic development in the region and will collaborate to identify and enhance the opportunities for employment and skill development," says Michael C. Burns, NaiKun chairman. "Our agreement ensures the Metlakatla First Nation will be in a position to participate in British Columbia's emerging wind energy industry."

The agreement is contingent upon NaiKun obtaining an environmental assessment certification. Currently, NaiKun is conducting comprehensive environmental studies that will form the basis of the application for an environmental assessment certificate.
