GE, in collaboration with AGL Energy (AGL) and civil engineering construction company, CATCON, have announced a contract to develop and build the US$ 450 million Silverton Wind Farm in Australia.
The Silverton Wind Farm, located in western New South Wales, is the first greenfield development under the Powering Australian Renewables Fund (PARF), a partnership between AGL, QIC and Future Fund for the development of approximately 1,000MW of large-scale renewable energy projects. The 58 GE 3.4MW wind turbines have rotors spanning 130-metres and once operational the wind farm will generate approximately 780,000 MWh of energy annually. The wind farm is expected to be fully operational by mid-2018.
