The project will feature 28 Vestas’ V162-5.6 MW turbines from the EnVentus platform, marking 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 230 metres to fully capture the site’s high wind shear.

“Vestas is proud that through the Kaban Green Power Hub, Neoen and Vestas’ global partnership has been extended to Australia” said Purvin Patel, President of Vestas Asia Pacific. “We are pleased that Neoen has chosen our leading technology, market experience and broad service solutions to help them achieve the best return on investment for their project”.

Peter Cowling, Head of Vestas Australia and New Zealand, added that the energy generated by Kaban Green Power Hub will make a critical contribution to the northern fringe of Australia’s electricity network and that sustainable projects like this continue to demonstrate the reliability of wind generation, along with its ability to be deployed in remote regions of the country.

Delivery of the turbines will commence in the first quarter of 2022, with commissioning scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of 2022.
