Greater Halifax Partnership

Eastern HRM Community Engagement Session

On Saturday, March 29, 2014, a community engagement session was held in Oyster Pond. The communities of Eastern HRM (Lake Echo to Ecum Secum and Musquodoboit Valley) came together to look at the strategic priorities for the entire region. Approximately 70 enthusiastic people from the community attended and participated in the event.

The engagement session included: capturing existing community visions and plans, looking for commonalities, getting community input via a community meeting and create a strategic statement that can be used as a starting point for the region to look at their overall strategic priorities.

Thank you to all community participants and your commitment to the eastern HRM region!

Based on the exercises conducted during the event, the community created a strategic plan of the group’s vision, mission, core values, strategic priorities and the identification of specific goals and objectives.

Sheet Harbour Port News 2014

A ship sailed into Sheet Harbour this week using some of the same energy that will power its cargo. The E-Ship 1 owned by Enercon used wind power to travel across the Atlantic and haul turbine components from Europe to the small Eastern Shore port, the Halifax Port Authority announced.

Instead of sails, the vessel features four tall columns — two near the back of the ship and two near the front — containing Flettner-rotor motors to harness wind energy. “It is amazing to see,” Austen Hughes, vice-president of operations for renewable energy company Natural Forces Technologies Inc., said Wednesday.

“They have some fairly unique wind-powered technology that can actually cut the diesel required to run the ship.” The ship is 130.4 metres long and 22.5 metres wide and carries a crew of up to 15 people.

In a news release announcing the visit, Enercon said the use of wind energy has reduced diesel consumption — the vessel has seven diesel generators and two electric propeller motors — by about 30 per cent.

The ship, which made its inaugural visit to Sheet Harbour on Monday, first set sail in 2010 and was built to ship turbine components also made by Enercon. On Monday, it delivered nine turbine blades, each with a rotor diameter of 92 metres, Hughes said.

Sheet Harbour Port News for 2013

Port Authority

On the Atlantic coast, the Sheet Harbour Marine Terminal, 115 kilometres northeast of Halifax, handled components for a large windmill project this summer, said Patrick
Bohan of Halifax Port Authority, which now operates Sheet Harbour. “Sheet Harbour was an excellent place about an hour closer to the wind farm than Halifax, so it worked very nicely,” Mr. Bohan said. About 50 turbines, brought in from Europe, were handled at
Sheet Harbour for about three small wind farms near the terminal.
