GDF SUEZ and International Power (70% owned by GDF SUEZ) are pleased to announce further progress in developing wind energy in Canada with new Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) secured for two 99MW wind farms in Ontario and the start of construction of Cape Scott 1, a 99MW wind development in British Columbia.

IPR-GDF SUEZ North America has secured 20-year PPAs with the Ontario Power Authority for all of the output from the 99MW Erieau and 99MW East Lake St. Clair wind projects. Each project is estimated to cost approximately CAD$300 million (€214 million) with commissioning of both facilities expected in 2013.

In addition, construction will shortly commence at Cape Scott 1, a 99MW wind farm with a 20-year contract with British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority. The project is estimated to cost CAD$300 million (€214 million) and is anticipated to be in operation in 2013.

Gérard Mestrallet, Chairman and CEO of GDF SUEZ, said,“These projects demonstrate excellent further growth in our wind energy portfolio in Canada. Our global expertise and skills in wind power enable the Group to strengthen and continue to grow its position in renewable energy. With these projects we are pleased to reinforce our commitment to environmentally clean power generation within a country that shares the same priority.”

Philip Cox, CEO of International Power, commented,“Canada is a key market for renewable energy, with high quality projects that are supported by long term Feed–In Tariffs. We are delighted with our progress which strengthens our position in this attractive market with further growth opportunities.”

An exchange rate of CAD$1:€0.7130 has been used in this announcement.
