H.B. White Canada Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary of White Construction Inc. has been selected by IPR-GDF SUEZ North America to be the EPC contractor for the East Lake St. Clair Wind Farm. The 99 megawatt wind farm is located in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent on the eastern shoreline of Lake St. Clair in Ontario, Canada. The project spans 6800 acres and will consist of 55 Vestas V-90 1.8 MW turbines.
White has installed over 4,000 megawatts of wind power across North America and this will be the fifth wind project constructed by White in the province of Ontario. “HB White is pleased to be a part of the East Lake St Clair project with GDF Suez. White expanded operations in Canada and opened an office in Ontario in 2005 to support the growing construction demands for renewable power projects in Canada. We are proud that our investment in Ontario is able to support the requirements and intent of the Province’s Feed In Tariff (FIT) program.” said Greg Duke, Vice President of Business Development for HB White Canada Corp.
As the EPC contractor, H.B. White Canada Corp. will self-perform the construction of all access roads as well as modifications to existing public roads, design and build all foundations, collection systems and erection of the wind turbines.
