EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Pattern is a premium independent power company. We own and operate ten wind power projects in the United States, Canada and Chile that use proven, best-in-class technology and have a total owned capacity of 1,255 MW. These projects generate stable long-term cash flows in attractive markets that have strong growth potential. Each of our projects has contracted to sell all of its energy output, or a majority, on a long-term, fixed-price power purchase agreement with a creditworthy counterparty. Ninety-five percent of the electricity to be generated by our projects will be sold under these power purchase agreements, which have a weighted average remaining contract life of approximately 19 years. (Pattern Energy, 2014) Pattern and Manitoba Hydro collaborated on a joint venture with the successful negotiation of a 27-year power purchase from the St. Joseph Wind-Farm Project, where 60 wind turbines were erected on 125 square km in the rural municipalities of Montcalm and Rhineland. The project contributed to the local economy, creating 225 construction jobs, 15 permanent positions and an estimated $38 million in total to land owners and an additional $44 million in local municipal taxes over the life of the wind-farm. (Government of Manitoba, 2010) The success of the St. Joseph Wind-Farm Project has prompted Pattern Energy to construct Manitoba’s largest wind-farm in Altona, Manitoba by erecting 85 wind turbines on 200 square km of agricultural land and producing renewable energy for a guaranteed 25 years. Another power purchase agreement will be formalized with Manitoba Hydro seeing Pattern Energy investing $120 and Manitoba Hydro and the Provincial Government of Manitoba lending Pattern Energy $370 million which is to be repaid over 20 years.

1.0 INTRODUCTION Altona is a town in southern Manitoba in the rural municipality of Rhineland about 100 km south-west of Winnipeg and 133 km north of Grand Forks, North Dakota. Pattern Energy has plans to build Manitoba’s largest wind-farm in Altona by erecting 85 wind turbine generators producing 195.5 MW of renewable energy on 200 square km of leased agricultural land. The project delivery method for the Altona Wind-Farm Project will be based on the Traditional Method of Design-BidBuild and commissioning of the power system and all auxiliary equipment. The project budget is estimated at $490 million using comparative unit pricing with the St. Joseph Wind-Farm Project. Financing will be made available through the Provincial Government of Manitoba and Manitoba Hydro. The authorization date of the Altona Wind-Farm Project is September 22, 2014 and the projected finish date is October 30, 2015. Assumptions and constraints include the leasing of land, financing from Manitoba Hydro, financing from the Government of Manitoba and the formalizing of a long term power purchase agreement with Manitoba Hydro. Risks include delays in construction due to weather and timely shipping of wind turbine generators. Project success criteria will be based on the completion of the project within the specified duration and budget and the satisfaction of the residents of Altona, municipal/provincial governments and Manitoba Hydro.

2.0 STAGES OF PROJECT DEVELOPMENT The project life cycle of the Altona Wind-Farm Project will consist of three stages of project development: • • •

Pre-Construction Stage Construction Stage Commissioning Stage

PATTERN ENERGY

2.1 PRE-CONSTRUCTION STAGE Upon authorization of the Altona Wind-Farm project, the project management team will initiate the planning of the project and hold an informal public consultation with residents and governing figures of Altona and the province to address issues and answer any questions. A Project Charter will be drafted and finalized formally identifying project goals, scope, project organization and providing summary of objectives and management. Site investigations and initiation of a pre-feasibility report and feasibility analysis report will be done in house with the mobilization of surveying, environmental and geotechnical departments. Formalization of land leases and the power purchase agreement with Manitoba Hydro will prompt the design phase. Project engineers, designers and technologist will prepare preliminary and detailed design specifications and drawings as per reports and site analysis which will be reviewed at 50% and 75% completion to ensure requirements are being met and all quality procedures are being followed by the design team. Contract Documents will be tendered for the bidding phase, upon which a contractor will be selected. A Contract Statement of Work will be drafted and finalized prompting the construction stage to commence.

2.2 CONSTRUCTION STAGE The mobilization phase will secure permits, bonds, licenses and insurance. A project schedule will be developed for all tasks and a kick-off meeting will be held with stakeholder’s and Pattern staff to clarify the scope and ensure a complete understanding of the project’s requirements. (Bennett, 2003) Equipment and resources will be mobilized to prepare the site f or the construction phase, upon which bi weekly site inspections will occur for the monitoring and control of quality management, to assure that the work complies with the technical requirements set forth in the contract documents. Procurement of turbines will take place during the construction of roadways, crane pads and turbine foundations. Any civil engineering work including changes to work, shop drawings, record drawings and structural calculations will occur awaiting timely delivery of turbines will be erected upon completion of foundation work and all auxiliary equipment will be installed and connected. A project closing phase will conclude all activities including project “Post-Mortem” Meeting, finalizing all subcontracts, archiving project documentation, and performing a “Lessons Learned” Report to formally close the project.
