June 11 (Renewables Now) - Australian renewables company Infigen Energy (ASX:IFN) reported slightly lower May power generation from two assets, the Lake Bonney 2 and 3 wind farms of 159 MW and 39 MW, respectively, as output has been curtailed by the network operator.

Unscheduled maintenance at South East Transformer Number 2, now concluded, was the reason for the curtailment, the company said today. Despite that, Infigen’s total power generation for the 11 months through May 2019 surpassed the-year ago figure by 12%. Its wind farms produced 1,606 GWh between July 2018 and May 2019.

Infigen actually produced more power in the last 11 months than in the 12 months of its fiscal 2017/18 ended June 30, 2018. The increase was mainly due to the completion of the 113.2-MW Bodangora wind park.

The company's results for fiscal 2018/19 will be available in August.
