Beothuk Enegy plans 180MW wind farm off coast of Quebec #green

Beothuk Enegy plans 180MW wind farm off coast of Quebec 23 Sep 2013 Canadian wind developer Beothuk Energy is set to build a 180MW pilot wind park off the coast of Quebec. According to ReNews , the park will run to a cost of CAD$400m ($388m). and will consist of 30 turbines, each with a capacity of 6MW. The energy generated will cost less than CAD$0.10/kWh, Beothuk says. The company also plans to use gravity-based foundations for the offshore farm, which it says are lower-risk, require less expenses, and are more versatile than traditional foundations. Beothuk will begin manufacturing them for offshore wind turbines at Canada’s Corner Brook port and ship to Atlantic Canada and the northeastern US.
