SEOUL (Reuters) - A South Korean consortium led by Samsung C&T Corporation has won a $6 billion deal to supply renewable energy equipment to the Canadian province of Ontario, the company said on Thursday.

The deal to supply 2 gigawatt wind power turbines and 500 megawatt solar power generators will be signed later on Thursday in Canada, a company spokesman told Reuters, confirming earlier media reports.
