An installation supporting Ontario’s plan to retire coal generation while increasing its renewable energy supply

When Ontario’s Feed-In Tariff program was announced, developers from around the world took note, and many wanted to participate in offsetting coal generation with green power. Samsung proposed plans for the $7 billion, 250 MW Grand Renewable Energy Park, North America’s largest wind and solar energy cluster. Combining 150 MW of wind and 100 MW of solar photovoltaic generation, the project will power over 25,000 homes in Ontario with green energy. Stantec was selected to provide integral services to this landmark development based on our ability to tackle world class projects, and redefine industry benchmarks.

To get the precedent setting project started, we helped Samsung with all of the necessary pre-construction activities and approvals, from environmental assessments and surveying to cost estimates and preliminary design. The design features a 20 km (12.4 mi) long 230 kv transmission line and interconnection station, including a 2 km section that runs under the hamlet of Nelles Corners.

With our technical expertise and intimate knowledge of Ontario’s energy grid, interconnection variables, and local distribution companies, Stantec was just what Samsung needed in a local partner.
