Senvion is marking the commercial operation of the Rivière-du-Moulin wind project in Quebec, Canada.
With 175 2MW turbines totalling 350MW, the wind project consists of Senvion MM92 and MM82 Cold Climate Version (CCV) type turbines. Several of the turbines are equipped with Senvion de-icing technology, adapted for cold Canadian climate conditions. The Rivière-du-Moulin wind farm is part of the 1GW framework agreement Senvion signed with developer EDF EN Canada in 2009. The project is located in the unorganized territory (UT) Lac Pikauba in the MRC de Charlevoix and the UT of Lac Ministuk in the MRC du Fjord du Saguenay. Rivière-du-Moulin is expected to produce enough electricity to power approximately 77 000 households.
