Construction begins at hybrid wind, battery storage project in Australia

first_imgConstruction begins at hybrid wind, battery storage project in Australia FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:The first of 56 turbines that will make up the nearly 200MW wind power component of Neoen’s Bulgana Green Power Hub is being installed, marking a new milestone for the ground-breaking hybrid renewables and battery storage project in Victoria.The project, which broke ground at the site of an old gold mine in Stawell in May last year, will deliver 100 per cent renewable energy to what will be the country’s biggest vegetable glasshouse, owned by Nectar Farms.In a statement on Wednesday, the Australian branch of French renewables developer Neoen said the first wind turbine was on the way up, while construction across the wider site continued to build momentum.“The integrated wind and battery storage facility continues to create hundreds of local jobs and is well on its way to meeting the targeted delivery date of August 2019,” said Neon Australia managing director Franck Woitiez. “Upon completion, the $A350 million facility will generate over 740,000MWh of emission-free, clean, competitive renewable energy per annum for the Stawell region and wider Victoria.”In comments to RE back in May of 2018, Neoen’s Woitiez said that project’s like the Green Power Hub served to demonstrate that the clean energy transition was well underway, and that coal was “a thing of the past.”The hydroponic greenhouse will take around 15 per cent of the output of the wind farm, and its needs will be backed up by a 20MW/34MWh Tesla battery storage facility.More: First turbine goes up at Neoen’s wind and battery hub in Victorialast_img read more
