Acciona wins Mortlake bid

14 September 2018

Acciona says it will start construction in 2019 of a 157 MW wind farm in Australia after winning a contract in a renewable energy tender called by the state government of Victoria.

The Spanish renewable energy firm announced in a statement that the Mortlake South wind farm will cost €177 million to build and will bring its operating renewable energy capacity in Australia to 592 MW by 2020.

Mortlake South will comprise 35 Nordex 4.5 MW wind turbines, and will also incorporate an energy storage unit. The energy storage component will help to improve the performance of the wind farm as well as facilitate its grid integration.

Australia is a strategic market for Acciona, the firm said. It already owns and operates four other wind farms in the country: Cathedral Rocks (64 MW in South Australia), Gunning (46.5 MW in New South Wales), and Waubra (192 MW) and Mt. Gellibrand (132 MW), both in Victoria.
