GDF SUEZ unit starts up 99 MW British Columbia wind energy project
The $292 million wind power project has the capacity to generate over 290 GWh of clean, renewable energy annually
The Cape Scott project created more than 300 construction jobs during peak construction and 12 permanent operating and maintenance positions. Since the start of construction in the summer of 2011, the project infused more than $51 million into the local economy.
With the addition of the Cape Scott Wind Project, GDF SUEZ Canada and partners Mitsui & Co., Ltd. and Fiera Axium Infrastructure currently operate 660 MW of wind-powered generation facilities in the Canadian Maritimes, Ontario and British Columbia and have a growing solar portfolio. Cape Scott is the joint venture's tenth wind installation in Canada.
