Renewable Energy

Renewable energy type generating facilities are becoming more and more prominent in today’s modern electric power systems, driven by current global trends. Renewable energy facilities can range from several MWs in size to windfarms generating 100’s of MWs and all have to be designed to meet the connecting utility’s technical requirements.

Virelec has been active in this market since 2002 with the following landmark projects:

  • first commercial windfarm in Ontario built by OPG on the Bruce peninsula
  • first large scale solar farms, supplying utility interface connections for the 80MW First Solar built project for Enbridge in the Sarnia, Ontario area
  • first customer owned 500 kV substation windfarm interconnection in Ontario, supplying the complete protection and control eHouse

Renewable Energy Protection and Control Systems can be delivered as stand-alone panels for installation in the facility’s Control Room or in the Substation Building. Alternatively, Virelec can supply complete, movable Control Buildings with all panels, auxiliary AC and DC supply services, fully tested and ready for site installation.

Be it a landfill gas generating station, solar energy park or a large windfarm, designed for industrial or commercial use, Virelec has the experience and capabilities to design and build a system that will meet the requirements of any electric utility or commercial enterprise.
