March 16 (Renewables Now) - The renewables division of General Electric (NYSE:GE) on Wednesday said it will supply the turbines for the 145.5-MW Flyers Creek wind project of Iberdrola Australia in New South Wales.

Consisting of 38 units of GE’s 3.8-MW turbines, the wind farm is expected to be completed in 2023 and to generate power corresponding to the needs of 86,000 average Australian homes.

The contract also includes a 10-year full-service agreement.

GE said this is its seventh wind project in New South Wales. The turbine manufacturer expects to have 2.5 GW of installed onshore wind capacity in Australia across 13 wind farms by 2024.

The Australian unit of Spanish electric utility Iberdrola SA (BME:IBE) announced a commitment to constructing the Flyers Creek wind farm last month, with building works starting in March.
