enXco Service Canada has signed an agreement with Cartier Wind Energy to provide services for the 109.5MW Baie-des-Sables wind farm in Quebec, Canada.

enXco’s Operations Control Center (OCC) will supply remote monitoring services for wind farm which will provide Cartier with permanent monitoring of the facility.

The OCC will also perform remote resets or dispatch Cartier’s wind technicians as required.

enXco Service Canada O&M business development manager Timothy Fratta said the company leverages it’s NERC-compliant OCC to serve Cartier’s needs in Gaspésie.

"Effective remote monitoring represents a valuable tool for wind farm owners, ensuring that resets are performed safely and contributing to lower down time," Fratta said.

The Baie-des-Sables wind project, which includes 73 units of GE 1.5MW SLE wind turbine, started operations in November 2006.
