Meridian builds wind farm in Australia

AGL will take all of the wind power output and wind energy certificates from the wind farm, made up of 174 Suzlon S88 wind turbines with a total capacity of 365MW, which is expected to deliver about 945 gigawatt hours of electricity each year.

Construction is expected to take about three years, but the venture is still dependent on meeting a series of conditions, including approval by the boards of both companies, Australian energy websites reported.

Meridian late last year missed out on a resource consent for its Project Hayes development of 176 turbines with the ability to generate up to 630 MW of power on the Lammermoor Range in Central Otago.
