Invenergy commences operations at Roncevaux wind farm in Quebec, Canada

Published 11 January 2017

Invenergy Wind has completed the construction and started commercial operations at the Roncevaux wind farm in Quebec, Canada.

Roncevaux is located in the Ruisseau-Ferguson unorganized territory in the MRC d’Avignon, Quebec, Canada, approximately 500 km east of Quebec City.

The 74.8MW project features 34 General Electric GE 2.2-107 wind turbines. Energy output will be purchased by Hydro-Quebec Distribution through a 25-year power purchase agreement.

Invenergy Development senior vice president Bryan Schueler said: “We’re pleased to complete this important milestone together with our local community partners.

“We were faced with an ambitious timeline for this project, and thanks to the strong relationships and collaboration with our partners, we were able to accomplish our goals for making Roncevaux operational before the end of 2016.”

Régie chairman Richard St-Laurent said: “Roncevaux is the first project in production that demonstrates the validity of the partnership between two regions, Gaspésie and Bas-Saint-Laurent. Thanks to our development partner Invenergy."

Energie Eolienne Bas-St-Lauren chairman Michel Lagace said: “The realization of the Roncevaux project with our partners Gaspésiens and Invenergy represents a breath of fresh air for the RCMs, the Maliseet First Nation of Viger and our 200,000 citizen-shareholders who will have access to significant profits for the next 25 years."

The Roncevaux wind facility is situated close to Invenergy’s existing Le Plateau, Le Plateau 2 and Des Moulins Phase 2 wind farms. Roncevaux is a collaboration between Invenergy, the Régie intermunicipale de l’énergie Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Énergie Éolienne Bas-Saint-Laurent S.E.N.C.
