ATLANTIC ORIENT PORJECTS

The Canadian subsidiary of the US wind company Atlantic Orient Corporation (AOC) is undertaking new wind turbine projects in Ontario, the Canadian Arctic, and the Maritime provinces this year, says the firm's Bob Sherwin. The subsidiary is looking at establishing small projects of four to five turbines, including grid connected and wind-diesel schemes. Atlantic Orient Canada Inc (AOCI), based in Burnside, Nova Scotia, was formed last year as a joint venture between Nova Scotia firm Seaforth Engineering and AOC of Vermont. AOCI Nova Scotia will be assembling turbines, marketing them, and manufacturing some components. Seaforth is negotiating erection of an AOC 15/50 unit to supply the Nova Scotia Technology Innovation Centre in Halifax. AOCI's David Lawrence is optimistic about the potential for the turbine in small on-grid applications in remote communities. Alaska, Morocco, and Southeast Asia are all seen as markets.
