US-based renewables company Pattern Energy Group LP announced on Monday that it has started building its 150-MW Lanfine Wind power project in Alberta, Canada.
Lanfine Wind, which was developed by Pattern Canada, will represent an investment of some CAD 350 million (USD 281.1m/EUR 242.7m), the company said.
The wind farm site is located to the south and west of the town of Oyen, Alberta in Special Area 3. There, Pattern Canada will raise 35 units of the Vestas V150-4.2 MW turbines, delivered in 4.3 MW operating mode.
Lanfine Wind is one of 11 wind power projects that Pattern Canada has under construction and in operation. The new wind farm in Alberta is expected to enter full commercial operation by the end of 2022.
