About the project
Port Hawkesbury Paper is building a 130.5-megawatt (MW) wind project, known as the Goose Harbour Lake Wind Project, which will be located on lands in Guysborough County that are currently under license to Port Hawkesbury Paper for approved sustainable forest management.
This project represents another step towards securing the long-term viability of one of the largest industrial employers in Nova Scotia. Goose Harbour Lake Wind will also ensure an environmentally sustainable optimization of the Port Hawkesbury Paper facility’s operations, reducing its carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions.
In compliance with the Province of Nova Scotia’s rigorous Environmental Assessment and Approval Process, Goose Harbour Lake Wind Farm and its environmental experts, STRUM Consulting, have completed and continue to undertake a number of detailed studies.Learn More
