K2 Wind Project Meeting In Kingsbridge

Kinsgbridge K2 Wind Energy Project Turbine Locations.

Officials with the K2 Wind Energy project brought members of the Community Liaison Committee up to date on the progress of the project at a meeting in Kinsbridge last night.

The K2 project involves the erection of 140 turbines in the area north of Goderich up to the Kingsbridge area.

K2 Wind Site Manager Glenn Hubbers says construction started late last year and continued through the winter.

This spring they’ve been building access roads and excavating foundations and will start to pour foundations for the turbines in the very near future.

Hubbers says they expect the turbines to start arriving in mid-July and crews can start erecting them at that time.

At the same time they’ll start work on the sub-station and transformer station and all of the cabling that connects it all.

Hubber says¬†in spite of a very difficult winter, they’re still on schedule and they expect to be generating power by the spring or early summer of 2015
