1st Stage gets underway
Neoen has officially launched its flagship Goyder Renewables Zone, providing ‘notice to proceed’ under a turn-key contract to a consortium of GE Renewable Energy and for the construction of a 412 MW wind farm known as Goyder South Stage 1.
The wind farm will consist of 75 GE 5.5-158 Cypress turbines, a model that has been widely deployed in Australia and across the world. The power plant will be connected to ElectraNet’s Robertstown substation via a new transmission line.
Early works have commenced, and with supplementary approvals finalised, major construction works are scheduled to start in Q2 2022. The wind farm is expected to be operational in 2024.
