BURLINGTON, Ont. – Windstream Wolfe Island Shoals has signed a deal with Siemens Canada to supply up to 130 turbines for a 300-megawatt offshore wind power project on Lake Ontario.

The turbine blades will be manufactured at Siemens’ renewable energy plant in Tillsonburg, Ont.

Windstream says the project will be located between five and 16 kilometres off the southwest shore of Wolfe Island, in eastern Lake Ontario.

Windstream says selecting Siemens guarantees the Wolfe Island Shoals project will contain more than 50 per cent Ontario content.

The project will create more than 1,900 jobs for the first five years of development and 175 jobs after construction.

Windstream’s parent company has 11 early stage development projects totalling 1,050 megawatts in Ontario, with additional projects in B.C. and Wyoming.

Bill Smith of Siemens Canada said the company is looking forward to contributing to the development of Canada’s “first offshore wind project.”
