First GE turbines in Canada online

Canada's newest wind farm began generating electricity in August, although its trio of high-powered owners does not expect to complete commissioning and ramp up to full production until this month. The C$48 million, 30 MW Magrath Wind Power Project in southern Alberta consists of 20 GE Energy 1.5 MW turbines. It is the first installation of GE's technology in Canada. The project is owned by Calgary-based oil giant Suncor Energy, Spanish renewables developer Corporacion Energía Hidroeléctrica de Navarra (CEHN), and Calgary's Enbridge Inc. Enbridge, which operates the world's longest crude oil pipeline system and is Canada's largest natural gas distribution company, is buying one-third of the project's output as power for its pipelines system. No other contracts for the power have been announced.
