Construction of the 80-megawatt Saint-Robert-Bellarmin wind park will start this summer at a site between Lac-Megantic and Saint-Georges-de-Beauce, Repower said in a statement. Repower will provide its MM92 CCV model, it said.
The contract is the second part of an agreement that Repower signed with the unit of EDF Energies Nouvelles SA EEN, a French producer of clean electricity, for as many as 954 megawatts in November 2009. Repower declined to disclose the financial details when contacted by phone.
The wind farm was one of the projects chosen after government-owned Hydro-Quebec opened bidding for the installation of 2,000 megawatts of wind energy, according to the statement.
Repower said in the same statement that it signed a contract to supply 15 turbines to two wind projects in Ontario by Wind Works Power Corp. WWPW, a developer of wind farms in the U.S., Germany and Canada.
