Chinese turbine maker Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology (HKG:2208) is interested in growing its presence in the Australian wind power market and also has plans to set foot in the solar field, Bloomberg said Thursday.
The company is currently evaluating one photovoltaic (PV) scheme along with several wind farm projects in the country, local managing director, John Titchen, told the news agency in a phone interview. Also, Goldwind is mulling the possibility of constructing hybrid plants by co-locating solar and wind farms with joint infrastructure.
Just recently Goldwind inked an agreement with TransGrid to connect to the Australian grid its 175-MW White Rock wind farm in the state of New South Wales. The Chinese is preparing to kick off construction works at the site later in 2015 with completion expected in mid-2017.
Goldwind entered the Australian power market in 2009.
