This 102 MW project is being developed as a partnership between Oxford Frozen Foods, Minas Basin Pulp and Power, and Nova Scotia Power.
ACCIONA Windpower has been selected as the successful wind turbine manufacturer for this project which, upon completion, will be the largest wind farm in Nova Scotia capable of supplying electricity to 32,000 homes, a press release from DSTN said.
“Having worked with ACCIONA Windpower in the past, we are looking forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with this leading turbine manufacturer. We are confident that through hard work and dedication that this project will have a positive outcome for everyone involved,” said DSTN CEO Myong-Jun Park.
On behalf of the South Canoe project, David Hoffman Co-CEO of Oxford Frozen Foods said, “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with both Acciona and DSTN on this project. The ability of DSTN to apply the skill and technical expertise of their local Trenton workforce to the construction of state-of-the-art towers is a significant part of this project. We appreciate the opportunity to place this work with our neighbours in rural Nova Scotia and look forward to working with the DSTN team.”
This project is a major stepping stone in DSTN’s development and gives the company a great opportunity to have its skilled workforce return to the Trenton facility to begin production.
