The contract covers cold climate versions of Senvion’s 3.2M114 turbines, which will be installed in North America for the first time.

The turbines, which have a hub height of 100m, are expected to generate enough electricity for about 94,000 homes.

The project is being developed by the three Mi’gmaq First Nations of Quebec and Innergex Renewable Energy.

Hydro-Quebec will buy the electricity generated from the project under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

The Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n wind farm is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2016.

Senvion CEO Andreas Nauen said: "We are delighted to deliver our turbines for this flagship project with the First Nations. Big wind farms like Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n highlight the importance of the renewable sector for the country."

Innergex Renewable Energy president and chief executive officer Michel Letellier said: "Signing this turbine supply contract marks an important milestone in the development of the MU wind project, founded on our strong partnership with the Mi’gmaq First Nations of Quebec. As a result, the project’s risk profile and economic returns are improved."

Senvion had earlier supplied its MM92 turbines for the 24.6MW Viger-Denonville wind farm in Quebec.
