Senvion, a global manufacturer of wind turbines, has signed a contract with Pacific Hydro to supply, install and service 14 MM92 turbines at the Yaloak South Wind Farm near Ballan, Victoria in Australia.
According to the company, the 28.7 MW wind farm will produce enough electricity to power nearly 16,000 households. Turbine installation is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
Robert Boyle, Yaloak South Wind Farm project manager from Pacific Hydro, says, “We have developed a long-standing relationship with Senvion and have worked together to deliver multiple projects in Portland. We are pleased to be joining forces with Senvion again to deliver our latest project.”
Senvion maintains a total of 74 MM82 and MM92 turbines for Pacific Hydro at Cape Nelson North, Cape Nelson South, Cape Bridgewater and Cape Sir William Grant, all located in the Australian state of Victoria.
Earlier this year, Senvion Australia officially opened its new service center in Portland, Victoria, ensuring it is well positioned to continue to service Pacific Hydro’s wind farms.
Since commencing operations in Australia in 2002, Senvion has installed 216 wind turbines from across the Senvion 2 MW series, with a cumulated rated power of close to 440 MW in Australia. Senvion Australia Pty. Ltd. is the regional subsidiary providing Senvion with wind turbine technology and solutions across Australia, New Zealand and the Southern Pacific Region.
