DSV Projects successfully completes Whitehorse Haeckel Hill Energy Project
Watch the new video of our Projects team managing the renowned move of wind turbines to Whitehorse, Yukon
This project is the first of its kind for the Yukon and is owned by the Kwanlin Dün First Nation. The project will reduce reliance on fossil fuels and lower carbon emissions in the region, as it supplies clean energy to the capital city of Whitehorse.
With this project, DSV offered our technical capabilities and global reach to bring our solutions to reality from Europe via the Panama Canal and the Port of Stewart, BC near the Alaska border to the remote Yukon where temperatures in the winter were once recorded at -63 degrees C.
The project involved working with all of our partners throughout a 2+year planning process to the remote and challenging site.
Our ability to execute the project seamlessly involved many facets of our team and partners globally. From our local Canadian Projects team, global DSV Chartering desk, to DSV’s technical wind energy experts located in Denmark, whereby we utilized specialized vessels and delivery services from origin port to site.
DSV completed this project safely, on time, and under budget with the final complete delivery to site in July 2023.
The new wind turbines will power up to 650 homes over the 20-year lifespan and will generate electricity, the equivalent of what more than 40 million litres of diesel fuel would do with generators, offsetting a portion of the Yukon’s increasing greenhouse gas emissions from energy production.
