Enbridge acquires 103-MW wind project in West Virginia
Located in Grant County, West Virginia, New Creek Wind will comprise 49 Gamesa G97/G90 turbines and is targeted to be in service in December 2016. The project was developed by EverPower Wind Holdings LLC., an independent U.S. renewable energy developer.
The project is backed by renewable energy credit (REC) sales and off take agreements with fixed pricing through mid-and-long-term contracts.
New Creek will be constructed under a fixed-price engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) agreement with White Construction Inc. Gamesa will provide turbine operations and maintenance (O&M) services under a five-year fixed price contract, following which Enbridge will operate.
Including this acquisition, Enbridge has invested approximately CAD $5 billion in renewable power generation and transmission since 2002. Enterprise-wide, the Company now has interests in nearly 2,000 MW of net renewable generating capacity operating, secured or under construction. ■
