Lanfine Wind Energy Project

Pattern Development is proposing the development of the Lanfine North and Lanfine South Wind Power Projects in the vicinity of Oyen, Alberta. Pattern Development acquired the Lanfine North and Lanfine South Wind Power Projects from BowArk Energy. The project is located to the South and West of Oyen, and will be up to 290 megawatts (MW) in capacity. The project will be constructed in two phases: Lanfine North (up to 150 MW) and Lanfine South (up to 140 MW). Each phase will have separate project collector substations and interconnection points. The project will be in Special Area 3 and the Municipal District of Acadia on approximately 45,000 acres of private land. Pattern will request signoff from the Special Areas Board, the Municipal District of Acadia, Alberta Environment and Parks, and will request approval from the Alberta Utilities Commission for the project. Pattern intends to submit this project into the upcoming Alberta Electric System Operator’s (AESO) Renewable Energy Procurement.

Pattern and BowArk initiated the Stakeholder Public Consultations process for the proposed Lanfine North and South Wind Power Projects at the beginning of March 2017. In compliance with the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) Rule 007, Pattern and BowArk mailed out Public Consultation Information Packages to stakeholders, participants and residents within a 2KM radius of the project boundary. The first community open house was held, in Oyen on March 21, 2017. The BowArk Team along with our land, environmental and biologist consultants were in attendance to provide information about the project, answer questions and address public concerns.

Pattern and BowArk mailed the second Public Consultation Information Packages to stakeholders, participants and residents within a 2KM radius of the project boundary in September 2017. The second community open house was held, in Oyen on September 27, 2017. The BowArk and Pattern Team along with our land, environmental and biologist consultants were in attendance to provide information about the project, answer questions and address public concerns. A third round of consultation was mailed to stakeholders in November 2017 based on the feedback received at the open house and the second round of consultation.

Pattern and BowArk mailed the fourth round of Public Consultation Information Packages to stakeholders, participants and residents within a 2KM radius of the project boundary in September 2018. With the public consultation process almost complete, BowArk anticipates the filing a Phase 2 Buildable Areas application in October 2018. A copy of the documents that have been available to the public via mail and the open house is posted below.

As the proposed project moves forward, Pattern and BowArk will keep this site up to date with the current information.
