Pattern Energy Group has started construction of its Lanfine Wind power project in Alberta, Canada. The 150 megawatt (MW) project, which will provide enough clean energy to power approximately 25,000 homes in Alberta annually, is expected to enter full commercial operation by the end of 2022.
“The Lanfine Wind project is bringing substantial economic and environmental benefits to Alberta by creating hundreds of new jobs, generating millions in revenue locally, and establishing strong community benefits,” said Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Energy.
The Lanfine Wind project will utilize 35 Vestas V150-4.2 MW turbines, delivered in 4.3 MW operating mode. Developed by Pattern Canada, the Lanfine Wind project will be located to the south and west of Oyen, Alberta in Special Area 3.
Lanfine Wind represents a projected investment of roughly C$350 million in Alberta. With Lanfine Wind, Pattern Canada has brought 11 wind energy projects into construction and operation across five provinces over the last decade.
