Canada-based gas and oil pipeline company Enbridge Inc., which lately has gotten into the renewable energy business, said in a May 12 earnings report that the New Creek wind project in West Virginia is in construction and due to be in-service at an unspecified point in 2016.
In November 2015, Enbridge announced that it had acquired a 100% interest in the 103-MW New Creek project, located in Grant County, West Virginia, from EverPower Wind Holdings LLC. Enbridge’s total investment is expected to be approximately US$0.2 billion.
New Creek will be made up of 49 Gamesa turbines. The project is being constructed under a fixed-price engineering, procurement and construction agreement with White Construction Inc. Gamesa will provide turbine operations and maintenance services under a five-year fixed price contract. The project is backed by renewable energy credit sales and medium and long-term offtake agreements.
