Samsung Pattern (SP) Armow is establishing a Community Liaison Committee to act as an advisory body and to discuss the important aspects of construction, installation, use, operation, maintenance, and retirement of the Armow Wind project.

This committee is a requirement of SP Armow's Renewable Energy Approval (REA) and will serve as a forum to share ideas, express concerns and to provide the community with ongoing updates about the project. 

The committee is not intended to revisit matters already addressed through the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) approval process.

The committee for the Armow Wind project will consist of up to 14 people, with membership drawn from a cross-section of the local community in order to provide a broad and balanced perspective. 

The deadline for applications to become a member of the committee has been extended to Jan. 24. 

The committee will meet at least four times over a two-year period, with two meetings each year. Committee members will be encouraged to share any information and the results of all committee discussions with other interested community members.

The first committee meeting is planned for Feb. 4, 6-8:30 p.m., at the Best Western Plus Governor's Inn, Kincardine.

Each meeting will be open to the public so that the community can participate by observing. Requests for delegations are welcome and must be made in writing prior to each meeting to the committee facilitator. All meeting materials (e.g., agendas, minutes) will be available for review on-line at: www.armowwind.com

To join the committee, contact Mark van der Woerd of AECOM, at 905-390-2003 or E-mail: Mark.VanderWoerd@aecom.com so that he can speak with you about the application process and confirm next steps.


The Armow Wind project is an approximately 180-megawatt commercial wind energy generation facility located in Kincardine. It is expected to generate enough clean energy to power 55,000 homes. 

The project is being developed by SP Armow Wind Ontario LP by its general partner SP Armow Wind Ontario GP Inc. (SP Armow), which obtained approval from the MOE, Oct. 9, to build a Class 4 Wind facility.
