Vestas has won a 157 MW order from Neoen to deliver the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of Kaban Green Power Hub in Far North Queensland, Australia.
The wind power project will feature 28 of Vestas’ V162-5.6 MW turbines from the EnVentus platform. This marks Vestas’ first EnVentus order for Asia Pacific and Australia, as well as Neoen’s first Australian project with Vestas.
From the base of the tower to the highest tip of the blade, the wind turbines will reach 230m to fully capture the site’s high wind shear.
“The energy generated by Kaban Green Power Hub will make a critical contribution to the northern fringe of Australia’s electricity network,” said Peter Cowling, Head of Vestas Australia and New Zealand.
“Vestas is the wind turbine supplier and principal contractor for Kaban Green Power Hub, which is our first project together in Australia,” said Louis de Sambucy, Managing Director of Neoen Australia.
Vestas will start the delivery of the turbines in the first quarter of 2022, with commissioning scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of 2022.
