Hornsdale wind farm AustraliaThe 100MW Hornsdale wind farm is being developed by French renewable energy producer Neoen and built by Siemens Australia. Seven of the 32 turbines in Phase 1 of the farm in the Mid North of South Australia were switched on to the grid.

The remainder of the Phase 1 turbines are expected to come on line in the coming months. Hornsdale was awarded a contract to deliver 100MW to the Australian Capital Territory Government (ACT) in February 2015 as part of the first reverse auction, enabling Phase 1 to go ahead. In December it secured a second 20-year contract with the ACT Government, which will allow Phase 2 of the project, a further 100MW, to go ahead possibly next year. The farm has a potential output of 270MW with the remaining capacity expected to come in a yet to be confirmed Phase 3.
