H.B. White Canada Corporation Selected to Construct 24-Megawatt Wind Portfolio in Nova Scotia

Contractor Brings Top-Tier Experience to Smaller Community Wind Projects

HALIFAX, NS -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- H.B. White Canada Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of White Construction Inc., has been selected as the EPC contractor to build four wind energy projects in Nova Scotia. The wind energy projects, have been developed by juwi Wind Services Canada, on behalf of the project's community and institutional owners. The selection was made after a competitive process managed by juwi Wind Services Canada. "White is a top tier North American wind energy construction company and we saw real value in White's competitive pricing, capacity and previous Nova Scotia experience," said juwi Director of Operations Jed van Sciver.

The twenty-four megawatt portfolio consists of: ten-megawatt Pockwock Community Wind Project, six-megawatt Millbrook Community Wind Project, four-megawatt Truro-Heights Community Wind Project, and four-megawatt Whynotts Community Wind project. "The White organization and their affiliated companies have built over 10,500 MW of wind power projects throughout North America and traditionally builds much larger projects. However, the close proximity of these projects and our past experience working with First Nations made the juwi wind portfolio an attractive opportunity for our company," said Chris Hanson of White Construction Inc. Mike Kosiancic of Firelight Infrastructure Partners, the common equity owner across all four projects said of White's selection, "it is really unique to have such a large and capable contractor building community wind projects this size."

The projects were developed as a portfolio under the Nova Scotia Community Feed-In-Tariff program, where each project is partially owned by the local community. "Using the White organization gives our local investors greater certainty that our project will be completed on-time and on-budget," said Terry Norman, President of Chebucto Pockwock Lake Wind Field Limited. Additionally, three of the four projects in the portfolio also have significant ownership positions held by Nova Scotia's Mi'kmaq Bands. Chief Bob Gloade of Millbrook First Nation said, "as Chief of the majority owner in one of the projects and as Chairman of the Mi'kmaq Rights Benefits Committee, it was important to see that White had experience with First Nation's labour and contractors and that they will continue that commitment as they build these projects."

The four projects entered into turbine supply agreements with Vestas to supply a total of twelve V100-2.0 MW turbines in late 2013. Representatives from Vestas, White, juwi, the ownership groups and the initial project developer, Community Wind Farms Inc., hosted a series of public open houses the week of February 17th to share information with stakeholders about the upcoming construction.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
