Wind partner places lien on Amherst wind project

AMHERST – A potential legal dispute in the United States will not impact the operation of Sprott Power’s Amherst wind farm.

H.B. White Canada Corp has placed a lien on the Amherst wind project under under the Builders’ Lien Act against Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation and SP Amherst GP Inc. for its portion of the $61-million contract.

The amount of the lien, representing the amount due, or about to become due, is $8.35 million.

Jeff Jenner, president and CEO of Sprott Power, said the court action filed in Clinton, Ind. on June 4 will not impact the Amherst wind operation.

“This is a dispute between our contractor and their subcontractor,” Jenner said in an email statement. “We had a fixed price contract so it does not affect us nor the farm.”

H.B. White Canada was contracted to erect the 15 turbines, nacelles and blades associated with the 31.5-megawatt wind project that went into operation several weeks ago.

Suzlon supplied the turbines for the project that is expected to generate enough electricity to power 10,000 homes.

Michelle Montague of Suzlon Energy said it’s not unusual for liens to be filed at the end of a project.

“The wind farm is up and running nicely,” she said in an emailed statement. “In the construction industry it’s not unusual for liens to be filed at the end of a project. This really has noting to do with our customer Sprott Power and Suzlon is in the process of resolving the issues with White Construction.”

Contact could not be made with H.B. White Canada Corp.
