Construction begins on 214-MW wind farm in Australia

Vestas Wind Systems A/S has begun construction on the 214-MW Yandin wind farm in Australia, according to an Aug. 5 release.

The project is expected to cost about A$400 million and will consist of 51 wind turbines installed near the town of Dandaragan, about 175 km north of Perth. The companies said the project will be the biggest wind farm in Western Australia.

The facility is set to come online in September 2020 and will sell its output to Alinta Sales Pty Ltd. under a 15-year power purchase agreement. Vestas will operate and maintain the wind farm under a long-term service agreement.

It will be connected to Western Power's 330-kV electricity network through a 10-km transmission line and terminal station.

Thailand-based energy company Ratch Group PCL on July 26 signed a contract to acquire a 70% equity stake in the wind project from Alinta Energy Holdings Pty Ltd. for about A$53.3 million.

Under the subscription, sale and purchase agreement, Ratch's local subsidiary Ratch-Australia Corp. Pty Ltd. purchased 70% of common shares in Yandin WF Holding Pty Ltd. from Alinta subsidiary Renewable Energy Investment Fund Pty Ltd., as well as 70% of investment units in Yandin WF Holding Unit Trust from Renewable Energy Investment Fund's unit trust, according to a July 30 release.

"The investment increases [Ratch-Australia's] equity generation capacity to 1,250.2 MW and the project is the third large-scale wind farm after the 226.8-MW Collector project under construction in New South Wales and [the] operating 180.45-MW Mount Emerald in Queensland," said Ratch Group CEO Kijja Sripatthangkura. "It brings Ratch's total equity generation capacity to 7,677 MW."

Additionally, Alinta Energy will open applications for a community fund, which is anticipated to contribute more than A$50,000 to projects and groups within Dandaragan annually, according to an Aug. 5 release. The fund will be split into two rounds of A$25,000.
