China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Energy acquired a wind farm in Australia

China Guangdong Nuclear Wind Energy, a subsidiary of China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, acquired a wind farm in Australia from Goldwind Science and Technology Co, the largest wind turbine maker in China, according to an online statement on Thursday.

The 19.5-megawatt Morton’s Lane wind farm consists of 13 1.5-megawatt Goldwind direct-drive wind turbines and generates 60 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually.
