In November 2009, REpower signed a framework agreement for up to 954 MW for wind farm projects in Québec with SLE co-owners EDF Energies Nouvelles and RES Canada.

Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower Systems, says: “This is our largest project to date and a further milestone in REpower’s international business and the North American market, a market which is important for us. We want to carry out many more projects in Canada and this is a market in which we can make the most of the advantages of our technology.”

The first 75 wind turbines for Lac Alfred are to be commissioned by December 2012, while the remaining 75 wind turbines will enter operation in 2013.
