People interested in finding out more about a proposed offshore wind farm in western Newfoundland will have the opportunity next week.
Beothuk Energy Inc. is holding information sessions in Stephenville and Corner Brook. The informal sessions are being held to ensure transparency regarding Beothuk’s western offshore wind projects, including the proposed $466-million, 180-megawatt St. George’s Bay wind farm, which includes manufacturing and service facilities.
Sessions take place 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Wednesday in Stephenville at the Days Inn, and at the same times Thursday in Corner Brook at Glynmill Inn.
Executives of Beothuk and of some of its consortium partners and alliances will be available to answer questions from stakeholders and the public.
“Our plans have progressed to the point that they are generating excitement regarding the possible socioeconomic benefits our projects will bring to the region,” said Kirby Mercer, president and chief executive officer of Beothuk, in a prepared release.
Beothuk is an international green energy company, headquartered in St. John’s with a branch office in Corner Brook.
