REpower will deliver the first 2 MW wind turbines from early 2012, with the commissioning of the wind farm planned for autumn of the same year.

Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower Systems SE, says: “Canada is one of the world’s strongest growing wind markets and is of great importance to our business as well. We are delighted to be realising numerous high-output projects in the Québec region with EDF EN Canada Inc.”

The Massif du Sud wind farm is the third order from the framework agreement concluded between EDF Energies Nouvelles and REpower in November 2009. With the projects Lac Alfred and Saint-Robert-Bellarmin, and now Massif du Sud, EDF EN has released 530 MW from the framework agreement covering up to 954 MW.
