Turbines arrive in Chetwynd

Advertisement

It is a BIG day in Chetwynd today; the first commercial wind turbines in the Province have arrived in their new home.

Eight Vestas 3 MW turbines travelled on a 6,000 foot train, with each turbine blade alone taking up two rail cars.

They will take up residence at EarthFirst Canada’s Dokie 1 Wind Project site, 40 km west of Chetwynd. They will be installed by the end of the year with another 40 turbines scheduled to arrive in 2009.

The project as a whole is expected to cost $360 million. When completed, the Dokie Wind Farm is expected to generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 34,000 homes.
