In November, GPG (the international electricity generation subsidiary of Naturgy) opened its Crookwell II Wind Farm in New South Wales, inside the ATC (Australian Capital Territory) and only 90 kilometres from Canberra, the Australian capital.
As part of its corporate responsibility policy, Bií Hioxo has made a commitment to help its owners and employees following the earthquake on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in September. This support will be used to facilitate the reconstruction of homes following the earthquake that has been since followed by several aftershocks.
Global Power Generation Australia (GPG) has chosen GE to supply and install wind turbines in one of the largest renewable energy regions in Australia. Once it is finished in 2018, the Crookwell 2 Wind Farm will produce an energy supply equivalent to the electricity consumption of 41,600 homes in Canberra.
Construction of the Crookwell 2 Wind Farm will be undertaken thanks to a 20-year “Feed-in Tariff Entitlement”, which was awarded by the Government of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) in August 2016 to the company Crookwell Development Pty Ltd (CDPL) when it won the latest renewables auction promoted by this government body.
