  • Project Description:
    • The proponent proposes to construct and operate a single wind turbine generator (WTG) at Akpiksai Bay, in the municipal boundaries of the Town of Nain, Labrador approximately 250 metres west of the Town's dump site. The proposed WTG is a conical tubular steel tower with a maximum hub height of 60 metres and a three bladed rotor diameter of between 30 and 50 metres. The proposed power generation from the single WTG is between 225 and 660 kilowatts (kW).
