Crookwell II wind farm
The 91 MW Crookwell 2 Wind Farm, near Goulburn in New South Wales, supports the commitment made by the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) to supply 100% of its electricity from renewable resources after the ACT Government awards the zone’s feed-in tariff rights to GPG.
The project has 28 wind turbines and produces a over 300,000 megawatts per hour in a standard year, with zero carbon emissions, an energy supply equivalent to the electricity consumption of 41,600 homes in Canberra.
Crookwell 2 is the first wind farm in Australia for Global Power Generation, which aims to close more long-term purchase agreements for other significant renewable energy projects by GPG in Australia.
Berrybank 1 wind farm
With the Berrybank 180 MW wind farm, which will receive an investment of 259 million Australian dollars, GPG has entered the top five independent renewable energy operators in Australia with a renewable capacity of approximately 270 MW in the region. The construction of this project started in 2019 and will begin operating in the second half of 2020.
The awarding of Berrybank means that Global Power Generation can continue its strategy of international growth and renewable investment in a key market like Australia.
