This project, located on the north shore of Lake Erie, features construction of 58-Vestas model V90-1.8 MW wind turbine generators with a total installed nameplate capacity of 104.4 MW. Additional components include a 34.5-kilovolt (kV) underground and overhead electrical power line collector system, fibre-optic data lines from each turbine, a substation, an operation and maintenance building, a stormwater management pond, a meteorological tower and associated underground power and data cabling, and turbine access roads with culvert installations at associated watercourse crossings.
