Welsch Wind Power Inc (WWPI) is planning to undertake the construction of a wind farm in Pincher Creek, Alberta, Canada.
The project involves the construction of a 69MW wind farm that includes a substation, access roads and related infrastructure and the laying of transmission lines.
The project includes the installation of 13, ENERCON E-126 turbines and five ENERCON E-101 turbines.
In July 2010, Eolectric Development Inc (Eolectric) filed a planning application for the project.
In August 2010, Eolectric secured an approval from Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) and a development permit by the Municipal District of Pincher Creek.
In February 2012, Eolectric secured regulatory approval for the proposed development.
The project has been delayed on several occasions due to delays in the Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement and South Foothills Transmission Project, which are required for the interconnection and system reliability of its project.
In December 2013, Eolectric submitted a preliminary application with the AUC for construction deadline extension, which is December 31, 2015.
In November 2014, Eolectric received approval for construction deadline extension from December 31, 2015, to December 31, 2016.
In August 2015, Eolectric received approval for an application to change the ownership and license for the project in the name of Welsch GP.
On December 15, 2016 WWPI submitted an amendment to AUC, requesting to change the number and type of turbines and to extend construction completion date from December 31, 2016 to December 31, 2018.
On December 21, 2016, AUC extended the time of completion to June 30, 2018 and changed the type and number of turbines to be installed.
In March 2017, Enercon proposes to install its new 4MW-platform turbine with 13 E-126 EP4 4.2MW machines, as well as five E-101 E2 3.5MW units.
Planning activities are underway and construction is expected to complete in 2019.
