We are pleased to be bringing Goldwind's leading technology to Canada, said Jeff Jenner, Chief Executive Officer of Potentia Renewables Inc. The direct-drive 4-megawatt turbines combined with the strong Saskatchewan winds and our simple interconnection enables Potentia to set a world record low price for long term wind energy contracts. This project provides SaskPower with the lowest cost renewable energy in Canada for 25 years.
Potentia is a rapidly growing international renewable energy developer, owner and operator with assets in North America and the Caribbean. Potentia was recently awarded four large contracted wind assets in Western Canada. Potentia's construction plans for these sites represents more than 625 MW of wind power to come online over the next two years of which Golden South will be the first to come online. In addition, Potentia is the largest rooftop solar company in Canada currently operating more than 700 installations, representing close to 200 MW.
Goldwind is proud to work with Potentia Renewables, a leading renewable energy developer, to deliver clean, cost-efficient wind energy to Western Canada's robust wind market, says David Sale, Chief Executive Officer for Goldwind Americas. The latest 4-megawatt turbines, developed for North America, underscore our ongoing commitment to bring industry-leading products and technology to our customers and their projects -- further supporting a shared desire of a low carbon future for all.
The Golden South Wind Project will utilize 50 of Goldwind's latest wind turbine series, the 4S megawatt platform, which feature a scalable rated capacity from 4.2 to 4.5 megawatts, and 136 and 155-meter rotor diameters.
Under the terms of the deal with Potentia Renewables, Goldwind also entered into an agreement to provide the project with long-term maintenance services and a comprehensive warranty package.
The project is expected to be commercially operational by the end of 2020.
