Invenergy Buys More GE Wind Turbines and Joins CanWEA

Invenergy Wind LLC contracted with General Electric Company (GE) to purchase 400 of GE’s 1.5 megawatt (MW) wind turbines totaling 600 MW for use in projects slated for construction in 2007. Plus, Invenergy Canada has become a member of the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA), supporting CanWEA’s goal of 10,000 MW of wind energy installed in Canada by the year 2010.

“Our continuing acquisitions of GE turbines and Invenergy’s enhanced relationship with CanWEA are evidence of our commitment to the future of wind energy in Canada,” said Mark Bell, Invenergy’s Canadian Director. Invenergy’s activities over the last two years make it one of the top five wind energy developers in North America. In 2006, Invenergy has several projects under construction using GE machines, including the Victory, Camp Springs and Centennial Wind Energy projects. This is in addition to Invenergy Wind’s completion of three wind energy projects totaling 350 MW using the GE 1.5 MW wind turbine in 2005. “GE welcomes Invenergy’s new role in CanWEA and congratulate them in joining with us and other key industry players to foster the development of wind energy in Canada,” said Simon Olivier, Team Leader – GE Energy Power Generation, Canada & North East USA.
