Vestas has secured a 96 MW deal for the Hawkesdale Wind Farm in Victoria, Australia in partnership with Global Power Generation, a subsidiary of Naturgy Group. Vestas’ will supply and install 23 of its V136-4.2 MW wind turbines.
Upon completion of the project, Vestas will also deliver a 15-year service agreement. With an energy-based availability guarantee, the service agreement will maximize the energy production from the turbines and provide Global Power Generation (Naturgy Group) with a long-term business certainty.
The deal follows Vestas’ recent announcement of the co-development of the Berrybank wind project and the Ryan Corner wind project, two new Victorian wind parks with Global Power Generation. Together, the three projects will export a total of 424 MW of clean energy to the Australian grid.
Hawkesdale Wind Farm will power approximately 35,000 homes and create around 145 jobs during its construction. The delivery of the turbines is expected to take place in the third quarter of 2021. The commissioning is scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.
“We are proud that customers from all around the world turn to Vestas for our leading technology, market experience, broad service solutions and ultimately, the best return on investment for their wind project”, said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific. “Global Power Generation is a valued customer to Vestas globally and we look forward to building on our existing partnership through the delivery of Hawkesdale Wind Farm”.
