The wind farm, located in Ontario’s Essex County, near Harrow, features three Senvion MM92 type turbines on 100 m towers, adapted for cold climates. The three turbines have an installed capacity of 6 MW.

Senvion has also concluded a comprehensive service contract with the developer for a period of 10 years and is implementing a service station on site.
