Chinese company plans Ontario wind farm

Published by Steve Coleman on April 17, 2012

A Chinese energy producer plans to use North American technology to produce power in Ontario.

China Long Yuan Power Generation says it will add 100 MW of green energy to the power grid with 49 GE wind turbines at the Dufferin Wind Farm near the town of Shelburne.

Longyuan Canada Renewables Ltd., a subsidiary of the Chinese parent company, plans to run 31 1.6-100 wind turbines and 18 2.75-103 wind turbines to generate electricity under Ontario's feed-in tariff program. The wind turbines will be shipped to the project site in 2013. Commercial operation is expected to start in 2014.

"The Dufferin Wind Farm marks our first global wind project outside of China," said Wu Hao, president of Long Yuan Canada in a news release. "With rich wind power resources and strong supporting policies for its wind industry, Canada has created an excellent investment and operational environment for wind farms. For this very important project, we are glad to work with GE, a technology supplier with an outstanding global reputation and experience."
