In the dead of winter on the frigid plains of southern Manitoba, the K‑Line crew worked hard to complete their scope quickly so that Phase 1 of the St. Leon Wind Energy Project could qualify for critical CRCE credits. It was an aggressive schedule in an aggressive climate, but K‑Line was chosen for the task because of their cold-climate experience and its track record of success. One significant challenge was to ensure the extensive trenching and construction did not negatively affect the agricultural use of the land. K‑Line performed as promised, and their scope was completed on schedule. This project features 63 Vestas V82 wind turbines and produces 99 MW of power.
K‑Line Group of Companies was responsible for:
- Project Management
- Site Superintendence
- Procurement and installation of 34.5 kV collection system
- Installation of 31 km of 3-phase underground cable in 12 weeks
- Commissioning of padmount transformers, power cables, and fibre optics
