Nova Scotia-based Renewable Energy Services Ltd (RESL) has completed installation of a Turbowinds 600 kW wind turbine shipped from Europe in Halifax's Goodwood Industrial Park. Power generated by the turbine will be sold to Nova Scotia Power under a 15 year contract. RESL was one of six wind developers who were successful in Nova Scotia Power's 2004 request for proposals for renewable energy from projects less than 2 MW in size. The Halifax turbine will allow RESL to test the production characteristics of the wind energy resource in the area. "This is the first turbine installed in Nova Scotia by RESL but we expect to see up to a dozen turbines installed in 2005 and 2006," says RESL's Brian Watling. The turbine is the second Turbowinds 600 kW model owned and operated by Nova Scotia Power. The machines are made in Belgium.
