Wind Energy Institue of Canada: Wind R&D Park Project
25 July, 2012
North Cape, Prince Edward Island
The Wind Energy Institute of Canada (“Institute”) is currently in the process of bringing online a 10 MW wind power generating project at its site on the North Cape of Prince Edward Island. “The Institute is excited about the opportunity presented by its 10MW North Cape project,” said the Institute’s Chief Executive Officer Scott Harper. “In the process of commissioning the North Cape turbines, we have experienced some technical issues that have delayed us in bringing the project online. The Institute is working through these issues in conjunction with its turbine supplier, and we look forward to having the turbines operational and generating clean, sustainable electricity at the earliest opportunity.” The Institute is a non-profit corporation with over 25 years’ experience as a Maritime leader in wind energy research and development. The North Cape project consists of five 2MW turbines.
The Wind Energy Institute of Canada, located at North Cape, Prince Edward Island is a not for profit, independent research and testing institute. Its mission is to advance the development of wind energy across Canada through research and demonstration, testing leading to certification, training and public education, and collaboration. The Institute’s location and its access to a multi-seasoned wind resource make it an excellent choice for testing wind systems of any size.
