Diavik Wind Farm
The 9.2 MW Diavik Wind Farm is the first large-scale wind energy facility in the Northwest Territories. The project was developed by Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. to help diversify the energy supply at the company’s mining operation. The four ENERCON wind turbines are integrated into the mine’s existing diesel-powered system and will offset diesel use when the wind is blowing.
