Suzlon Energy plans wind power project in Australia

Wind power company Suzlon Energy is planning a USD 1.3 billion project in regional South Australia to power 225,000 homes a year.


According to an ABC report, Suzlon Energy Australia said the USD 1.3 billion wind farm will be built 20 kilometres South West of Ardrossan, a small town on the East Coast of the Yorke Peninsula.


It said up to 180 turbines will generate 600 MW of energy and deliver power to 225,000 homes in Adelaide via an undersea cable. The project is expected to create 500 construction jobs and 50 ongoing jobs will be completed by the end of 2015.


Mr Chris Judd Suzlon Energy Australia commercial director said that the company was approached by local landowners last year to develop the project.


He said that "It's basically been a landowner developed project and this has been a dream of theirs for over seven years now, so the beauty of this project is that it does come with some seven years of homework and data, etc, behind it to help justify its economics."
