Samsung Renewable Energy Inc. and Pattern Energy Group Inc. have announced that the 270 MW South Kent Wind project in Ontario is fully operational.

The project has a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Ontario Power Authority. Pattern notes that South Kent Wind utilizes 124 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbines with blades and towers that were made in Ontario.

In addition, Pattern says the project features TowerTEX's TowerSHADE solution, which is used to help mitigate the impact of night lights required by aviation regulations. According to the company, the tower shades eliminate light visibility from below the turbine out to 1.5 km while allowing the light to be seen from above by aircraft.
