REpower Systems AG and Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES Canada) have successfully completed the construction of a test wind farm in the Gaspé region.
The joint pilot project “Site Nordique Experimental en EolienCORUS” (SNEEC) consists of two REpower MM92 turbines, each with 2.05 MW nominal power. The Wind Energy TechnoCentre is the developer and owner of the project. Constructed in the town of Gaspé, near Rivière-au-Renard, the SNEEC project uses two special cold climate versions (CCV) of the REpower MM92. These have been designed for the demanding conditions of the Canadian 60-Hertz network. A REpower Systems AG team will monitor the turbines intensively over the coming months.
