Located in northern Ontario, the Prince Township Wind Farm is Canada’s third largest, boasting a 189-MW capacity. Since its completion in 2006, Ontario’s power grid has benefited from an added surge of clean and renewable electricity!
Snow and sub-zero temperatures didn’t hamper our ability to work through the winter: LafargeHolcim provided 53,000 m3 of concrete for the turbine bases to ensure the project maintained its tight production schedule.
How? By constructing a mobile plant capable of consistently supplying concrete resistant to the cold. Once winter turned to summer, we relocated and reconfigured the mobile plant for warm-weather production, installing a cooling system to meet project specifications.
The Prince Wind Farm helps to make for more sustainable cities and today provides clean, renewable energy to 40,000 Canadian homes!
