July 3 (Renewables Now) - A plastics recycling plant run by Advanced Circular Polymers in the state of Victoria will purchase wind power from a park that is currently being built by Goldwind Australia Pty Ltd.

More specifically, the plastics recycling plant in Somerton, which is part-funded by the state government, will buy electricity generated by the 321-MW Moorabool wind park in Victoria.

Goldwind Australia has been building the wind farm since July 2018 and has already finished excavating all turbine foundations. The civil earthworks activities are close to being completed and the company’s parent, Chinese wind turbine maker Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Tech Co Ltd (HKG:2208), is now delivering wind turbine components to the project site, the developer said.

In April 2018, Goldwind Australia struck a connection agreement with Australian Energy Operations Pty Ltd to hook the 107-turbine Moorabool wind park to the grid.
