Purchase Agreement for the 10.5-MW Serpentine Creek Hydro project.
This agreement kicks off the pre-construction activities for this small hydro facility, along with the 10.5-MW Clemina Creek project, whose agreement was signed two months ago, Sorgent.e says.
“The Serpentine and Clemina projects will create a flow of benefits to Simpcw First Nation and local communities, maximizing the social, environmental and economic impact of these new developments,” the company says.
HydroWorld.com reported in August 2010 that Mavel had delivered equipment for the Clemina and Serpentine projects, consisting of Mavel vertical Pelton turbines with five jets and 1,060 mm runner diameter. However, at that time the projects were owned by TransAlta Corp.
Sorgent.e Hydro Canada is part of Italian group Sorgent.e Holding, which has operated in the clean energy sector since 1995 and owns and operates more than 20 renewable plants in Europe and South America.
