Siemens Receives Follow-Up Order for Australian Wind Project


Siemens today announced it will supply, install, and commission wind turbines for the Homsdale Stage 2 onshore wind farm in South Australia.

The contract includes 32 SWT-3.2-113 direct-drive wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3.2 MW and a rotor diameter of 113 meters.

This is the second stage of a project Siemens began with Homsdale owner Neoen Australia in August 2015. With a generating capacity of 100 MW, the project represents a major foothold in the Australian Capital Territory’s target of 100 percent renewable energy by 2020.

The Homsdale project in Jamestown is about 125 miles north of Adelaide and will achieve a record low price of 77 Australian dollars per MWh.

Installation of the wind project is scheduled to begin in December 2016, with start of operations expected in June 2017
