Wind project pushing forward, project update


The South Branch wind farm is expected to be operational by the end of this year, according to Ken Little of EDP Renewables Canada.

He and Ryan Brown provided South Dundas council with a project update at the June 18 meeting.

“We are starting to mobilize the project team,” said Little. “There’s been no movement of earth yet.”

However, the contractor, White Construction has been selected.

The 30 megawatt industrial wind project will see 10 three megawatt towers located in the Brinston area.

These Siemens turbines will have a rotor diameter of 113 meters and will be located on a 99.5 meter tower. 

Civil construction is expected to start in late July, early August. Tower delivery is expected in the fall, with erection slated for November.

“We expect to have our renewable energy approval within the next few weeks,” Little said.
