TransCanada Corp. has announced that construction of its Kibby wind project is now complete. The $350 million project is now fully operational and was finished on time and on budget.

The 132 MW facility is located in Eustis, Maine. It created 315 construction jobs at its peak and resulted in 13 new full-time positions to operate and maintain the facility. In addition, approximately $110 million of the total project cost was spent directly in the state of Maine on materials, labor and accommodations.

The completion of Kibby brings TransCanada’s wind energy generation capacity to a combined total of 451 MW.
