Finavera Renewables Inc. has completed all of the significant environmental field work on its 75 MW Ghost Pine wind project in Alberta. The field work included wildlife, vegetation and land-use studies, historical resource investigations and approvals, avian and raptor surveys, and preliminary geotechnical surveys.

The project's final detailed design is close to conclusion, and the next step is to submit a planning application to the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (EUB). The EUB application is expected to be submitted this spring and, if approved, will result in portions of construction commencing in the fall.

According to the company, turbine foundation construction and erection would take place in 2009, with a targeted in-service date of December 2009. Finavera is currently negotiating financing options for the project.
