Trillium Power Wind Corporation announced Tuesday that it has designated Vestas Offshore (VWS.Co) as its 'Preferred Supplier' for all four of its offshore wind projects currently under development on the Ontario side of The Great Lakes.
As part of its strategic agreement, Vestas will become the exclusive
provider of up to 740 turbines, as well as a wide range of other
services, according to a Trillium release.
Trillium Power has agreed to deploy Vestas V112 3.0-MW turbines for
their first offshore wind development, Trillium Power Wind 1, located
17 to 28 km off the mainland in northeastern Lake Ontario. Vestas will
assist Trillium Power in determining the appropriate mix of turbines to
optimize the power production at each Trillium Power site.
Combined, Trillium Power's four projects, Trillium Power Wind 1, Trillium Power Wind 2, The Great Lakes Array and The Superior Array total approximately 3,700 megawatts (MW). Developing the sites is expected to require private sector investment of $14.8 billion over a 10 to 12 year period.
Trillium Power Wind Corporation (www.trilliumpower.com) is privately owned and headquartered in Toronto.
