Project Grand Valley Wind Project Phase I and II
Location North of Grand Valley, Ontario
Size 19.8 MW
Turbines 9 Siemens 2.3 MW, 80m hub height
Role Project Management and Construction Monitoring

The project involved the management of the supply and installation of 9 Siemens SWT 2.3-101 MW turbines. The site is located in the township of East Luther Grand Valley in the county of Dufferin.

Final permitting and tendering of the EPC contract took place in late-2010 and early 2011. Construction started with roads and turbine foundations in August and turbines were delivered in November. The project phases both came on-line with commercial operation in March, 2012.

CPL worked with Veresen through the permitting and tendering phase. A project manager and a full-time on-site construction monitor were engaged throughout the construction phase on management of project scheduling, cost control, municipal/county and landowner communication, and logistics between the contractors and turbine supplier.

The project was completed on schedule and on budget.
