    Lamèque Wind Farm

    The 45-MW Lamèque Wind Fam, located in New Brunswick (Canada), was developed by ACCIONA. It is made up of 30 AW1500 wind turbines and entered service in June 2011.

    Located in the Atlantic cost of the country, the wind farm is owned and operated by ACCIONA Energia. It took advantage of the sinergies of the different ACCIONA business units: ACCIONA Windpower supplied the WTGs and ACCIONA Infrastructure took part in the construction and power evacuation system. It generates energy equivalent to the power consumption of around 8,000 Canadian homes.
