Goldwind 2.5-MW wind turbine.

August 20 (Renewables Now) - Goldwind Americas has won a firm order to supply turbines for a 200-MW wind park that has just entered construction in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

The deal was placed by Canada’s Potentia Renewables Inc and covers its Golden South project, the unit of Chinese wind turbine maker Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology (HKG:2208) said on Monday. Under its terms, Goldwind will deliver 50 units of its 4S MW Permanent Magnet Direct-Drive (PMDD) platform machines with a scalable rated capacity of between 4.2 MW and 4.5 MW. They will be put on stream by the end of next year.

A long-term maintenance agreement and a comprehensive warranty package are also included in the contract.

The Golden South wind park is currently being built in Assiniboia and, once completed, it will generate about 900,000 MWh of electricity per year, saving more than 500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The plant will be the first one from a 625-MW portfolio that Potentia Renewables will bring online in Western Canada.
