The 40-turbine development is both companies’ fifth in the province and is subject to a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).
It Siemens’ SWT-3.2-113 turbines, which are capable of providing between 2.37MW and 3.2MW, the manufacturer said.
Samsung and Pattern bought the project from Engie (then known as GDF Suez), which had in-turn acquired it through the takeover of developer International Power.
The two companies also own the 124-turbine, 270MW South Kent site near Chatham-Kent, the 91-turbine, 179MW Armow wind farm in Kincardine Township, and the 67-unit 149MW Grand Renewable project in Haldimand County — all in Ontario.
They are also developing the 200MW North Kent project across two phases in Kent County, the first of which is due online next year, while the second is held up after failing to win a contract in Ontario’s 2015 large renewable procurement (LRP) process.
In 2010, Samsung signed a commercial agreement with the government of Ontario for 1.37GW of installed renewable energy capacity in the province.
