Project financing for Canadian wind farm closed

13.08.2013
- KfW IPEX-Bank providing CAD 61.7 million
- Support for German exports
- Renewable energy for several thousand households

Since this week the project financing for the Viger-Denonville wind farm in the Canadian province of Québec is in place: KfW IPEX-Bank is providing a long-term project financing loan of up to CAD 61.7 million. Supplier of the wind turbines is REpower, a German manufacturer of wind energy systems based in Hamburg. The project is being managed by the Canadian developer Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. jointly with the regional country municipality (RCM) Rivière-du-Loup.

Markus Scheer, member of the Management Board of KfW IPEX-Bank, commented on the closing: "KfW IPEX-Bank's financing for the Viger-Denonville wind farm in Canada focuses on one of the bank's priorities, namely environmental and climate protection. As REpower is involved in the project, the bank is also supporting the export of German-built wind turbines. We are pleased to work together once again with REpower, a long-time valued business partner of KfW IPEX-Bank."

Plans call for the wind farm to be erected by the end of this year. When commercial operation begins 12 REpower MM92 wind turbines with a total capacity of 24.6 MW will supply several thousand Canadian households with green energy every year. In addition to supplying the turbines REpower is also in charge of commissioning and maintenance of the systems for the first ten years. Offtaker is the energy supply company Hydro Québec.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
