March 11 (Renewables Now) - UK-based Renewable Energy Systems, or RES Group, has received the green light to build a 240-MW wind park at Dulacca in the Australian state of Queensland.
Llion Parry, development project manager at RES Australia, said in a statement that the construction of the AUD-450-million (USD 318m/EUR 282.5m) facility is expected to begin in early 2020, while completion is seen by 2021.
The project involves erecting 56 wind turbines at a site that is 250 km (155.3 mi) northwest of Toowoomba. About 400 jobs are expected to be created during construction and 35 employees to be retained after that.
RES is looking into the possibility of developing a solar project on the site, but this would need a separate development application.
