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; therefore, 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.
