Longueuil, Quebec-based Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. has announced that all 73 wind turbines of the Carleton wind farm have been erected. Access roads and the electrical substation have also been completed. The commissioning is under way, and commercial operations should begin by Nov. 30.

Innergex owns 38% of the Carleton wind farm through its interest in Cartier Wind Energy. TransCanada Corp. holds 62% ownership in the wind farm.

Construction of the project began in October 2007. The project has a total installed capacity of 109.5 MW and is expected to generate 340,000 MWh of energy per year. Expected annual revenues for this wind farm should total $26 million.

"We are very satisfied with the way construction work has progressed and are very confident that the project will reach commercial operation on time and on budget," says Michel Letellier, president and CEO of Innergex Renewable Energy.

The Carleton wind farm is the third Cartier Wind Energy project to be built following Hydro-Quebec Distribution's first call for tenders. The Carleton wind farm has a 20-year power purchase agreement with Hydro-Quebec for energy generated by the facility.
