Boralex kicking off construction of 10-MW Port Ryerse Wind Farm in Ontario

Construction of Port Ryerse Wind Farm, developed by Boralex Inc. (TSX: BLX), will begin June 13 and will last about five months.

Located east of the hamlet of Port Ryerse in Norfolk County, Ontario, this project will have four turbines, with a total capacity of 10 MW and will create up to 50 jobs during the construction, said Boralex in a June 8 statement.

Port Ryerse Wind Farm, which represents an investment of C$38.4 million, has been developed in response to the government of Ontario’s initiative to promote the development of renewable energy in the province. Commissioning of the wind farm is slated for November 2016.

Boralex develops, builds and operates renewable energy power facilities in Canada, France and the United States. A leader in the Canadian market and France’s largest independent producer of onshore wind power, it is recognized for its solid experience in optimizing its asset base in four power generation types — wind, hydroelectric, thermal and solar.
