Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology (HKG:2208) has won a contract to supply turbines for the wind farm portion of a hybrid power project in Western Australia.
The Aussie arm of the Chinese wind turbine manufacturer said on Wednesday it has received the deal from German renewables developer Juwi AG, which was earlier picked by developer Contract Power Australia to build the hybrid power complex. To be located in the town of Esperance, the project consists of a 4-MW solar farm with two 4.5-MW wind turbines, a lithium ion battery system and gas generators.
Goldwind Australia will be in charge of the delivery and installation of the GW 155/4.5 MW wind turbines. Under a separate agreement with Contract Power, it will provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the equipment for 10 years.
The Esperance hybrid renewable energy system is expected to be completed in early 2022. Its output will be sold to Horizon Power through a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA), with the generation seen to meet up to half of the town’s annual electricity demand.
Goldwind is also delivering turbines for a 17.85-MW wind farm that is part of the Agnew Hybrid Renewable Project in Western Australia.
