Construction Activities

We have installed 11 of the 87 turbines planned for the site and several others with base and mid sections up. The collection system and substation construction has commenced. 

What we have accomplished to date:

  • Access roads completed - 66 of 72 km
  • Turbine foundations completed - 51 of 87
  • Wind turbines installed - 11 of 87
  • Collector system cable install completed - 19 of 112 km
  • Permanent met tower foundations completed - 2 of 3
  • Foundation work at the south substation is 75% complete
  • Foundation work for transformers is 75% complete

We require our contractors responsible for construction work on the site – CER and Powertel – to strictly adhere to the MNRF’s Industrial Operations Protocol. Out of an abundance of caution, we have also voluntarily put in place enhanced fire-prevention measures. These measures include soaking down work areas, extended fire watches, and increased access to fire suppression equipment.

Here is a summary of planned construction activities for the wind project site over the coming two weeks:

  • Drilling and road works 
  • Turbine foundation work 
  • Wind turbine component deliveries 
  • Installation of wind turbines 
  • Collector system trenching 
  • Collection system and substation construction 
  • Permanent met tower installation 

Work on the transmission line is ongoing with 219 of the 586 structures up. Activities such as clearing the Right-of-Way and delivering the wood and steel poles continue to wind down. Pole setting, pole framing, and conductor stringing will continue to ramp up over the next two weeks.

The safety of our workers, our neighbouring communities, and the environment is our top priority. We will continue to keep the community updated on construction activities as work progresses. Sign up here to receive construction updates through our e-newsletter.
