EDF Energies Nouvelles commissions Lac-Alfred Phase 2 wind farm (150 MW) in Quebec

  • Wind

EDF Energies Nouvellesannounces the commissioning by EDF EN Canada, its local subsidiary, of Lac-Alfred phase 2 wind farm, with an installed capacity of 150 MW. This brings Lac-Alfred’s total capacity up to 300 MW amongst the largest in Quebec.

Lac-Alfred wind farm is now fully operational after two years of construction work, with a further 150 MW of capacity added to the original 150 MW commissioned in January 2013. With its total capacity, Lac-Alfred generates green energy equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of about 70,000 homes.

Lac-Alfred is co-owned by EDF EN Canada and Enbridge Inc. on a 50/50 basis. The electricity generated is purchased by Hydro-Quebec under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

The 150 wind turbines (75 for each phase) were supplied by manufacturer REpower. EDF Renewable Services, a local subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles, will operate and maintain the wind farm under a long-term Operations & Maintenance contract.

With Saint-Robert-Bellarmin (80 MW), Massif du Sud (150 MW) and Lac-Alfred (300 MW) wind farms, EDF Energies Nouvelles has completed over half of its 1 GW programme won under the Hydro-Quebec Distribution calls for tender in 2008 and 2010.
