Together with RES Group, Vestas has secured a 181 MW supply contract for Dulacca wind farm in Queensland, Australia. The project will feature 43 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines to be supplied and installed by Vestas.
Upon completion, Vestas will also deliver a 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. This agreement is to optimise energy production while also providing long-term business case certainty.
Peter Cowling, head of Vestas Australia and New Zealand, commented: “We look forward to successfully supporting this project which will contribute towards the Queensland government’s target of 50% renewables by 2030, and Australia’s broader clean energy transition”.
Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to take place in the second quarter of 2022, with commissioning to commence in the first quarter of 2023.
Through RES’s commitment to supporting local communities, this project will establish a Community Fund of 1.25 million Australian dollars. As a result, the nearby communities of Dulacca and Drillham will be eligible for the funding of local projects, community groups and organisations.
