Alstom and NaturEner Energy Canada have entered into a supply agreement wherein the former would provide 414MW capacity wind turbines for the Wild Rose Projects in Alberta.

The scope of the agreement includes 138 ECO 110 wind turbines each with a 3MW capacity and a maintenance contract for a 10-year term.

The contract will mark Alstom’s entry into the Canadian wind power generation sector and is valued at €420m.

Alstom North American wind business head Andy Geissbuehler remarked that the two companies’ respective expertise will result in a efficient and reliable technology solution to make best use of the site’s potential.

"The project also demonstrates Alstom’s ability to support utilities and independent developers with proven wind power technologies that can support utility scale projects in North America," added Geissbuehler.

The Wild Rose 1 and Wild Rose 2 wind farms will be located in Cypress County, southeast of the city of Medicine Hat in the province of Alberta and are scheduled to enter commercial operations at the end of 2014 and 2015 respectively.
