February 7 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine manufacturer Enercon GmbH has won an order for 345 MW of turbines from its EP3 platform, which will be used for projects in Canada.
The E-138 EP3 machines will be powering two wind farms in Canada, the names and details of which were not provided. Enercon also did not disclose the name of its client in the press release published on Wednesday.
The German manufacturer will be responsible for delivering the wind turbines and will also service them, following commissioning.
In Canada, Enercon operates over 2,200 MW of wind turbine capacity in eight provinces. Michael Weidemann, executive vice-president of Enercon Canada Inc noted that the EP3 platform positions the company “excellently” for the coming wind tenders in Canada, where it aims to further expand its presence. He also added that within the past few months the company has seen "a positive momentum in various international markets with the new EP3 platform."
