Natural Forces seeks enviro nod for 150-MW wind farm in Nova Scotia

January 24, 2022

Canadian independent renewable power producer Natural Forces is seeking environmental approval for an up to 150-MW wind farm project in the province of Nova Scotia.

The company has filed its proposal with the province’s Department of Environment, the latter said last week, giving the Benjamins Mill project an “under review” status. The application for environmental assessment was submitted by Natural Forces Developments Ltd Partnership.

The Nova Scotia-based company intends to install up to 28 turbines in the West Hants regional municipality, around 13 km (8.1 miles) southwest of Windsor. The machines will have a tip height of up to 200 m (626.2ft), with each of them planned to have a capacity of up to 6.2 MW.
