PROJECT UPDATE January 2017

Reed & Reed recently began construction of the Canton Mountain Wind Project in Canton, Maine. The project is being developed by Patriot Renewables of Quincy, MA. Reed & Reed worked with Patriot on the recently completed Saddleback Wind Project in Carthage, Maine, which is adjacent to the Canton Project. Because of our previous performance and the successful relationship that we developed with Patriot on that project, we were selected to build Canton.

The Canton project consists of 8 – GE 2.85 MW wind turbines with 103 meter rotors mounted on 85 meter towers. The turbines will be erected on rock anchor foundations secured to good old Maine bedrock. The generated power will travel through an underground ridgeline collector system, then overhead to the expanded substation built for the Saddleback Project.

Reed & Reed is self-performing the substation expansion, overhead and underground electrical collection system, WTG foundations, and turbine erection. Turbine components will be delivered initially to a laydown yard in Jay from which we will transport them up to the project site.

We are currently working on the substation expansion and overhead electrical collector system. Construction of the foundations, turbine erection, and the underground electrical collector system will be commence in late spring of 2017. Final completion will be in the fall of 2017.

Reed & Reed has been selected to build the Canton Mountain Wind Project in Canton, Maine. This project is a “Sister” project to the Saddleback Wind Project recently completed by Reed & Reed. Both of these projects were developed by Patriot Renewables.

Canton Mountain Wind consists of eight GE 2.85 MW wind turbines with 103 meter diameter rotors mounted on 85 meter towers. The turbines will be erected on rock anchor foundations. . The generated power will travel through an underground ridgeline collector system, then overhead to the expanded substation built for the Saddleback Project.

Reed & Reed will commence substation and overhead collector line work in 2016. Construction of the foundations, turbine erection, and the underground electrical collector system will be commence in late spring of 2017. Final completion will be in the fall of 2017.
