Vancouver-based NaiKun Wind Energy Group Inc. has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Prince Rupert Port Authority covering logistical elements for the construction phase of the company's offshore wind energy project in northwestern British Columbia.

The agreement will allow NaiKun Wind to develop areas where its submarine cable will meet the shoreline. The cable transmits wind-generated electricity from the project site off the east coast of Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands) to the British Columbia mainland's electricity transmission grid.

The agreement also provides NaiKun Wind with the opportunity to develop an area for a facility for sub-assembly of wind turbine generators and other equipment related to the project, which is the first proposed offshore wind farm in Canada.

The Port Authority manages property on Ridley Island, south of Prince Rupert, which is the planned landfall site for the transmission cable from NaiKun Wind's project.

According to Naikun, the transmission component of the project will generate jobs for the community, particularly construction work.
