Pirate Harbour Wind Farm

Project Name: Pirate Harbour Wind Farm

Partner: Port Hawkesbury Paper

Location: Point Tupper, Nova Scotia

Sector: Clean Power

Participation: Memorandum of Understanding

Description: With support from the Province of Nova Scotia, Port Hawkesbury Paper and IFE are evaluating the potential development of a 112 megawatt wind farm, comprised of 28 four megawatt wind turbines, 15 kilometres of overland transmission lines and two kilometres of subsea cables.

The Pirate Harbour Wind Farm will reduce the Mill’s reliance on fossil fuels for energy, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The project adds clean, renewable energy generation to Nova Scotia’s main transmission system and will help optimize the Mill’s operations.

The Mill is the largest industrial employer in the region and will continue to contribute to the economic prosperity of the province.

Benefits of CIB Involvement

The CIB will advise on the development of the wind farm by Port Hawkesbury Paper and IFE Project Management Canada, which includes project due diligence and financial modelling.
