EverWind building three wind farms in Nova Scotia to support production

July 26, 2023 | By Anthony Capkun

July 26, 2023 – EverWind Fuels announced the purchase of three wind farm development projects in Nova Scotia—Windy Ridge and, in partnership with Membertou, Bear Lake and Kmtnuk—that will power Phase 1 of its green hydrogen and ammonia project.

Trent Vichie, CEO of EverWind, says this $1-billion private investment “helps Nova Scotia move more quickly and cost-effectively toward its clean energy transition”.

Representing about 530 MW, the wind farms will be developed and built in partnership with Renewable Energy Systems Ltd. (RES). The green hydrogen and ammonia plant, meantime, will be developed and constructed in partnership with Black & Veatch.

“Every wind project we consider building is conditional on ensuring that we do not remove a single watt slated for domestic residential, commercial, or industrial usage from Nova Scotia’s grid,” Vichie said, adding that any excess electricity generated at these projects “will be made immediately available for domestic use”.
