Armow Wind commenced commercial operations in December 2015 and uses 91 Ontario-made Siemens turbines to generate clean, renewable energy for Ontario. The blades were made in Tillsonburg, and the towers were built in Windsor, Ontario.

AMEC Black & McDonald managed project construction, which was completed in December of 2015. Approximately 350 workers were on-site during peak activity, with an average of 200 throughout construction. Local workers and subcontractors were involved to the greatest extent possible in all aspects of construction – from building access roads and turbine foundations to assembling and installing turbine components. A talented team of 15 full-time employees operates and maintains the facility, in addition to the use of local contractors.

The facility is expected to contribute an estimated $10 million dollars in payments over 20 years, benefiting Bruce County, the Municipality of Kincardine and local school boards. We also support the community with sponsorships of local causes and through the Community Benefits Program. The program includes a $1 million contribution to the Kincardine Airport for their use to improve local operations and $12.6 million into a Community Benefit Reserve Fund over twenty years.
