Torys acted as counsel to Henvey Inlet Wind, a joint venture between Nigig Power Corporation and Pattern Energy Group LP, in advice on environmental, permitting, real estate and consultation matters in connection with the development and financing of the 300 MW Henvey Inlet Wind Project in northern Ontario.
The landmark project, which uses 87 Vestas V136 - 3.45 MW turbines, is both the largest single-phase wind project in Ontario, as well as the largest First Nation wind partnership project in Canada.
As the first-ever project of this scale in Canada to be built entirely on Reserve lands, Torys worked with Henvey Inlet First Nation and its counsel to develop a bespoke environmental and land management regime under the First Nations Lands Management Act.
Torys also acted on the following in connection with this project:
Henvey Inlet Wind, a joint venture between Nigig Power Corporation and Pattern Energy Group LP, in its application to the Ontario Energy Board for leave to construct a 103 km, 230 kV transmission line to connect the 300 MW Henvey Inlet Wind Energy Centre with the IESO-controlled grid (EB-2016-0310) and related matters
