M’CHIGEENG—A faulty piece of equipment has delayed the attachment of the rotor and blades to the first turbine under construction in M’Chigeeng, according to Mother Earth Renewable Energy project supervisor Grant Taibossigai.

“It’s a safety concern,” he said about the delay. “A piece isn’t locking into position, so they (the construction company) have sent for a replacement part.”

He said the part should be in by the end of the week, but in the meantime, the crew is moving to the next turbine site to start erecting the second turbine.

According to Mr. Taibossigai, the project is still on schedule.

“It’s been a very safe work site,” he said, noting that no one has been injured on the job. He also praised his security staff, which is keeping the site secure.

Once the turbines are complete, the next step will be preparing them to be connected to the Ontario Hydro power grid.

The project is slated to be complete in early February 2012.
