    Krobia I Wind Farm

    First commercial wind farm with AW3000 wind turbines on towers with hub heights of 120 metres.

    The Krobia I Wind Farm is made up of 11 AW3000 wind turbines with ACCIONA Windpower technology and 3 MW nominal capacity, for a total power of 33 MW. Connected to the grid in 2013 and operated by ACCIONA Energía, it was the first commercial wind farm installed by the company using concrete towers and hubs heights of 120 m, making it possible to better harness the wind potential of the location.

    Mt Gellibrand Wind Farm

    Winchelsea, Victoria (Australia)

    Most of the land around Mount Gellibrand is privately owned and used for sheep farming. The plains are generally very flat, with a number of permanent lakes and wetlands, and also windy, making them an ideal site for a wind farm.

    Cathedral Rocks Wind Farm

    Port Lincoln, South Australia (Australia)

    The site covers an area of about 29km², with a coastal exposure of nearly 11 kilometres. The Wind Farm consists of 33 two-megawatt wind turbines – generating enough green electricity to supply 35,000 homes every year.
