Armow Wind is a 179 MW project located in the Municipality of Kincardine in Ontario. Armow Wind is a 50/50 joint venture between Pattern Energy and Samsung Renewable Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung C&T Corporation, with shared development and financing responsibilities. The project consists of 91 2.3 MW Siemens Energy wind turbines. The wind turbine blades were manufactured by Siemens in Tillsonburg, Ontario and the towers were manufactured by CS Wind in Windsor, Ontario.

The Armow Wind project began construction in the third quarter of 2014 and commenced commercial operations in the fourth quarter of 2015. Construction was performed by AMEC Black & McDonald, which is a leading wind power construction provider with whom we have worked in the past. Local subcontractors were involved in all aspects of project construction – from building access roads, laying rebar and pouring concrete to installing the Ontario-made wind turbines.

The project sells 100% of its electrical output and environmental attributes under a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).
