Wind Power

Wind power is among the renewable resources that are front and centre at BBA. We’ve been active in wind power since the industry’s inception, and our unique Canadian expertise in this area sets us apart from our competitors in terms of commissioning, studies and network integration. Our team of experts is recognized throughout the industry and has participated in numerous Canadian wind power projects, including most of those developed in Québec. We have the resources and know-how to help our clients yield the maximum return on their investment and reduce their environmental footprint, be it through technical and economic feasibility studies, network studies, detailed engineering, construction supervision, testing and commissioning, and specialized measurement campaigns.
