Event description

Description

Tour the 300 MW Blackspring Ridge wind power project with WiRE on August 30th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

The 300 MW Blackspring Ridge project, located in Vulcan County, Alberta, is comprised of 166 Vestas V100-1.8 MW wind turbines. EDF Renewables managed the construction of the project under a fixed price engineering, procurement and construction contract with Mortenson Construction. Construction began in May 2013, and was completed in May 2014. As a result of the partnership agreements concluded in 2013, EDF Renewables and Enbridge became co-owners of Blackspring Ridge.

With an investment of about $600 million, the project represents the largest investment in wind energy in Western Canada. More than 350 jobs were created during the construction phase with 20 permanent operations and maintenance jobs.

Once purchased, there are no refunds for Field Trips but registrations can be transferred for another attendee.
