Following snow and ice in Nova Scotia the W.E.B-motor is again running in top gear. Two additional locations have been brought online virtually simultaneously.
Following snow and ice in Our snapshot shows just how challenging recent weather conditions have been. The fact that snow clearance in Canada is a virtually insurmountable problem meant that our own snowmobile was in increasingly frequent operation (see photo). The turbine manufacturer Vestas also used the snowmobile and this provided W.E.B with advantages regarding plant maintenance. However, all these difficulties have now been overcome and two additional Vestas V100 machines are already turning for W.E.B in the Canadian winds.
Isle Madame and Black Pond increase the W.E.B portfolio by 4 MW and are sited in highly promising wind locations. Stuart Lawrie, W.E.B’s local CEO in Canada is certainly pleased: “We are about to conclude Phase II in Nova Scotia and to date the W.E.B locations in Canada have proven most successful from a wind perspective. The Isle Madame turbine is situated in a highly exposed position on an offshore island and has the capacity to become one of W.E.B’s very best locations.” All that remains to be finished during Phase II in Nova Scotia are the two Nine Mile River turbines.
