GE Renewable Energy has announced contracts for the construction and long-term operation of the 209MW Murra Warra II wind farm in Victoria, Australia. The Murra Warra II wind farm will consist of 38 GE Cypress 5.5-158 wind turbines and is located 30km north of Horsham.
Construction of the project will commence later this year and will be fully commissioned and operational by mid-2022. The first Cypress wind turbine is set to be delivered to the Murra Warra site in mid-2021. GE has contracted Australian wind farm construction company Zenviron as balance of plant subcontractor, responsible for the project’s civil works and electrical reticulation. GE will also be engaging Australian subcontractors for additional work on the project in due course. The Murra Warra II project was developed by Renewable Energy System (RES) and Macquarie Capital. The project’s transition to the construction phase occurs at the same time as it is acquired by investment funds managed by Partners Group.
