The Quebec Government is providing financial assistance to Wind-Do Energy Inc. for the development of its midscale wind turbines network. The 500 000$ project will create a head of the series within Wind-Do’s new facilities in Saint-Léonard, Montréal.
Midscale wind turbines can address large markets if they provide competitive edges and efficiency comparable to those of giant wind turbines. Wind-Do Energy is about to meet this challenge; this is why the Quebec Ministry of Economy and Innovation, through its Innovation program, provides 150 thousand dollars to assist the development of wind turbines with modern engineering tools and equipment.
Wind-Do’s midscale wind turbines operate in small networks, which provides a competitive edge over giant wind turbines because they can be configured precisely to the needs of its customers.
Wind-Do’s 20 meter-high wind turbines do not generate visual and noise pollution problems, so they can be installed closer to users. Wind-Do’s wind farms can operate where giant wind turbines cannot, such as several off-grid locations in the far North. Wind-Do’s wind turbines are designed to be affordable. Wind-Do’s commercial success is based on the profitability that its customers and users can achieve in their respective sectors.
“Ultimately, our systems could cut the cost of generating electricity on off-grid sites. We estimate that Canada’s 250 off-grid communities would represent a multi-billion-dollar market for Wind-Do,” said François Gagnon, president of Wind-Do Energy.
The head of the series will be completed during the summer of 2020. In the meantime, Wind-Do Energy aims to set up a technology showcase and sign several agreements with potential customers and distributors in Canada as well as in export markets.
