A 192 MW wind farm in Victoria (Australia). Consists of 128 wind turbines and was one of ACCIONA's largest wind farms in Australia, operational since 2009.

The Waubra Wind Farm consists of 128 wind turbines, generating 192 MW of clean energy. Waubra Wind Farm used to be ACCIONA’s largest wind farm in Australia, operational since 2009. Located in the south-east of the country in the State of Victoria, it produces the energy equivalent to the demand from around 110,000 homes. The wind farm is constructed on cleared, undulating land, which is a mix of dairy, cattle, sheep and crop farming country. The location was selected due to the high exposure to consistent high winds and close proximity to the transmission network.

KEY POINTS

  • ACCIONA's second wind farm in Australia and first in Victoria
  • Provides approximately 8 ongoing full-time positions on site, plus seasonal contracting opportunities
  • ACCIONA has created a direct total community investment of approximately $10 million since the project became operational
