South Australia’s largest wind farm planned
The Snowtown II wind farm development will be capable of generating 270 megawatts of renewable energy and powering approximately 180,000 South Australian homes.
TrustPower, a listed New Zealand electricity company, awarded Siemens the contract to engineer, procure, construct and maintain a full turnkey solution for 90 wind turbines including the substation, switchgear and transformers to connect the wind farm into the grid.
The Snowtown II wind farm will cement South Australia as the lead generator of renewable energy having already exceeded the nation’s 20 per cent by 2020 renewable energy target with 26 per cent of South Australia’s electricity now generated by wind. South Australia has now set a target of 33 per cent renewable energy by 2020. The new Snowtown II wind farm is set to help achieve this target. More >>
