By Editor


Vestas has secured a 97 MW deal for the Hawkesdale Wind Farm in Victoria, Australia. The project will feature 23 V136-4.2 MW wind turbines which Vestas will supply and install.

Vestas has a partnership with Global Power Generation, a subsidiary of the multinational power company Naturgy Group.

Vestas will also deliver a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

The deal follows Vestas’ recent announcement of the second stage of the Berrybank wind project and the Ryan Corner wind project, two new Victorian wind parks to be developed with Global Power Generation. Together, the three projects will export a total of 425 MW of clean energy to the Australian grid, said Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.

“Global Power Generation is very pleased to continue its partnership with Vestas as OEM and long-term maintenance service provider for Hawkesdale Wind Farm,” said Pedro Serrano, chief business development officer, Global Power Generation.

Hawkesdale Wind Farm is set to power approximately 35,000 homes and create around 145 jobs during its construction.

Delivery of the turbines is expected to occur in the third quarter of 2021, with commissioning scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.
